Good News From Palestine

Er, that's Palestine, Texas

Palestine woman wins $1 million in Lottery scratch-off ticket

August 25, 2010

PALESTINE — Brenda Richardson of Palestine hit a lucky streak Sunday that ultimately led to her winning $1 million in a scratch-off ticket.

A winning streak that started Sunday led Richardson to buy a $500,000,000 Blockbuster scratch-off ticket at JJ’s No. 211, 1901 Crockett Rd. That ticket revealed one of 40 $1 million prizes available in the game.

“I bought a ticket Sunday and won some money and cashed it in,” Richardson said. She then used her winnings to buy a $500,000,000 Blockbuster ticket.

“I won $50 on that one and bought another, and won $100 on that one and got this ticket,” she said about her million-dollar scratch-off...

Some people are lucky.

Not only do they win a lot of money but their 'Palestine' is in the United States of America.

I thought you had an option of living/staying in the US, and you chose this "palestine" out of your free will, or out of religious considerations, or whatever...
