"poor" guy, now all of the rats will scurry about trying to separate him from his winnings. But what the heck, I'd give winning a few million a try, and if the mooching became too egregious, I'd pay for full page ads in all Michigan papers stating that I have donated the rest of the money, so hopefully the beggars would go away. But wait that assumes the beggars read the newspaper... Hmm.
