Millionaires: Lottery winner, Clinton Library visitor

In rapid succession, two e-mails arrived about big numbers containing six zeroes:

* LOTTERY WINNER: Kenneth Beard, show above with his wife, Colleen, won $1 million with a $20 scratch off ticket purchase in the Millionaire Madness game, which still has a $1 million winning ticket outstanding. He bought the ticket at Tobacco Row in Russellville, and according to the Arkansas Lottery will share some winnings for kids and save for retirement. After, of course, paying the tax man better than a third of the million.

* VISITOR THREE MILLION AT THE CLINTON CENTER: Diarmuid Coyle of Dublin, Ireland, was welcomed today as the three millionth visitor to the Clinton Library since it opened Nov. 18, 2004. He didn't win a million bucks, but he did get a signed copy of President Clinton's autobiography, lunch for four at the center's Forty Two; a one-year membership and a $100 gift certificate for the Clinton Museum Store. An Irish visitor was apt. Clinton is widely admired there. Bono performed at the soaking wet library opening.

* DUCK DYNASTY WILL QUCK AGAIN: From CNN:

Little more than a week after it suspended "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson for incendiary remarks about homosexuality, the cable channel A&E said Friday that it would include him in future tapings of the reality television show, effectively lifting the suspension amid a flurry of petitions in support of Robertson.

"After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family," the channel said in a statement.
