Charles Houseworth: A dream world

A dream world

With all that is going on in the world, I was quite surprised to find your May 18 front-page headline “Powerball excitement builds.” I simply had not realized how important this is in the overall scheme of things, particularly in that “it allows people to dream” as your sub-headline intones. Who knew? Thanks for the hard-hitting journalism.

By the way, in the old pre-lottery days, we did not dare dream of $600 million personal windfalls. We could spend our hard-earned extra dollars only on antiquated devices such as books to open the way to our dreams. How quaint.
