You probably will.

Senator Jim Summerville has a good idea for something that should be done.

From the Tennessean....


Sen. Jim Summerville, R-Dickson, filed a bill Thursday that would require all lottery advertising to prominently include this notice: “Warning: You will probably lose money playing the lottery.” If enacted, it could make Tennessee the first state lottery with a warning label.
Summerville said his goal is to make consumers more aware of their chances of winning.
“We have warnings on cigarettes, and we should have warnings about lottery tickets,” he said. “States that sponsor gambling should fully disclose the risks.”

  1. How about a bill to stop State sponsored gambling? This kinda of stuff is just to make you legislators feel good about the evil you do.

  2. Does warning labels on cigarettes do any good?

  3. Yeah, because we need the labels that say "Warning: May contain peanuts" on JARS OF PEANUTS.
