Following His tradition of helping overpaid professional athletes win sporting contests, the Good Lord guides a rich man to the Powerball jackpot:
"I just want to thank God for letting me pick the right numbers, or letting the machine pick the right numbers for me," said Mr. Whittaker, who is already a millionaire and the owner of three local businesses.
Good: Whittaker plans to use a considerable part of his new fortune to help the poor in West Virginia.
Not so good: He also wants to buy a house in "a gated community somewhere."

His wife wants to go to Israel because - no shit - "Jesus walked there."

Big advantage to this guy living in a gated community is that he will NEVER be my neighbor. Or yrs either, I bet.

I thought something like that when I first rea that story. Behind bars, where he belongs.
Also: someone should put a padlock on the gate of his gated community. So he can never get out again. Problem solved!
