WAS ANYBODY really surprised at the news last week that the Arkansas Lottery may have to cut back on the scholarships it hands out? Or at least the amount it provides students.

It seems not enough money was coming in to cover the costs. Which was good news to some of us. Apparently the new has worn off this whole, legalized scam, and not as many people may be gambling their money away on the scant hope of striking a jackpot.
