    It could be worse.

    What's theirs is mine! Seems to be the attitude these days. This doesn't surprise me in the least.

    Just the "have-nots" getting their fair share.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Other than the new car in the driveway, no one's going to know I hit the jackpot.

    Rule #1 : Keep your mouth shut! The less "information" leaking out of your pie hole the better.

    Rule #2 : If rule #1 isn't possible, (you have the right to remain silent, just not the ability) don't wrestle with an armed intruder. Good way to meet Jesus face to face.

    Rule#3: Be packing yourself just in case you are confronted with Rule# 2 scenario.

    Aren't the winners names made public after they collect their winnings because tax payments are considered public record?

    Not always. Depends on how your state has it set up. Some make the winners pick up the check in front of a crowd others allow do not. One of the big lottey's winners were a group of financial managers a while back. They did not pick up the check in person and stayed out of the spotlight. No names were ever given....

    I'd do whatever possible to make sure my name wasn't known. If I up and disappear, that's how you'll know.

    You can obtain a lawyer. Then give him the power to pick it up.

    Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
    By definition my country now calls me a radical

    The only people outside of who currently live in my home that would know would be my local gun shops!
    Disarming innocent people does not protect innocent people.
