Well, we all knew we'd be effected in a personal way. I just hope the folks who have already won and are using the annual option will continue to get their checks.

Jeez, what a disaster! Iowa lottery sales suspended for one day.
This tragedy happened almost two weeks ago.
There was nothing on the networks about this. Another media coverup?
