Didn't see that coming, again
Ticket sales for the North Carolina lottery's first fiscal year fell well short of expectations, generating about $110 million less in education funds than legislators had projected.
Expect to see marginally higher prizes for the scratch-off games, significantly more advertising, especially billboards in lower income communities, and lots of head scratching as the legislature tries to figure out how to make up the shortfall.
There's a problem with trying to raise money from poor people. I'll bet some of you can figure out what it is.
