Powerball winner

Posted By on Sun, Jan 3, 2010 at 7:08 AM

It's a happy day for somebody in Arkansas. He or she holds a $25 million ticket in yesterday's Powerball drawing. That you, Durango? (On second thought, the winner, of course, may not be an Arkie, but a visitor who purchased the ticket here.)

It'll be good for a lump sum payment of roughly $12.5 million. The state and federal tax men will grab $5 million or so of that. Still enough left for a bass boat or two.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
