*FESS UP: Who out there has bought a Powerball ticket? Didn't some wise person once say, the lottery is for the mathematically illiterate? Ticket holders have a 1 and 175 million chance of winning, according to Arkansas Lottery spokesperson Julie Baldrige. She said the lottery has generated $2.48 in scholarship revenue this month alone on Powerball sales.

*RICKS NIXES FOX KICK: For those who chortled over Tom Ricks' handing Fox's head to it on a plate (video above), this article from the Washington Post will interest. The Post reports that when MSNBC invited him on, Ricks says them ‘You’re just like Fox, but not as good at it.’
