State Bus Tour to Promote PA Lottery

From the "Are you kidding me?" department is this announcement that, despite a massive budget deficit, the state is launching a statewide bus tour to promote a new Pennsylvania Lottery game.

What better way to help people during a recession than tell them to waste their additional unemployment compensation on the Lottery - the worst bet you can make.

What next, a taxpayer-funded advertising campaign to encourage citizens to invest with Bernie Madoff?
