There was one poor former convict
who was trying to go straight....
so he flew to other states to buy their lottery tickets for clientele;
everything was going great until
they caught him in the airport with a suitcase full of lottery tickets.
They got him on some crazy thing or other;
Taking Lottery Tickets across State Lines.....!??

redwingirish,
Must be from Detroit we know what brillant ideas have come out of there, you could spend every dime, and you would never get George Bush or any ex-president in jail. Totally insane
notion. Give to poor children to enable them to have clothes and eat, get an education.
