Quote of the Day - Here's something to think about: How come you never see a headline like 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?
Every once in a while you stumble on something so bizarre you can't believe it. Here's the story of a woman who stole up to $6,000 a day from her employer to play the New York lottery, apparently hoping to win it big.
In all, she stole $2.3 million.
I don't know about you, but that amount sounds like a winning lottery ticket to me. Apart from the stealing part, I'd be satisfied with $6,000 a day. I could probably figure out a way to live on that kind of change. It apparently wasn't enough for Annie Donnelly, however. She kept at it over a three-year period, taking the money in checks of varying amounts from Great South Bay Surgical Associates.
She faces up to 12 years in prison. The DA, with the brilliance only an an attorney can muster, said, "She obviously had a gambling problem." That gem comes from Donna Planty, assistant Suffolk County district attorney, according to the CNN article linked above.
Assuming you worked a regular 8-hour day, where would you find the time to buy 6,000 lottery tickets a day?
