What would you do with $500 million dollars?  I just went to fill up the Moose Caboose at the Irving on Western Avenue in Augusta. The sign reads "Wednesday night’s Powerball jackpot is $500,000,000" (annuitized). As a game show host would say, “a half billion dollars.” Recently I wrote about Powerball and lotteries in general. At the time the jackpot was only at $143 million dollars.  Maybe I’ll buy a ticket this time around. Only one set of numbers can win, right? I’m not much of a gambler. So buying a lotto ticket seems like a waste but here we are at half billion dollars.
