    Lotteries, educational or otherwise, have far more serious problems than just the occasional crooked operative. It’s the same ever-increasing problem that casinos have—the evolution of human intelligence. We are no longer mesmerized by bells and whistles and promises of great excitement and immediate wealth to be had for pumping our nickels into a rigged wagering system. Pure and simple, it’s a fools’ game. No, no one likes to pay taxes, but taxing is socially a far better arrangement than duping the ignorant by thoughts of great wealth in an absolutely losing game. Education benefits of lotteries? Not really. If education is important to us we will be willing to pay for it, to earn it. If not, we’ll remain ignorant, lotteries and casinos notwithstanding.
