There goes the neighborhood.

There goes the neighborhood.

This is probably not the sort of thing that is good for a community.
The town of Winner, S.D., has produced a winner — and a $232 million one at that.

The winning ticket for Wednesday night's $232 million Powerball jackpot was sold in the ranching and farming town of 2,800 people. [AP]
The winner could conceivably split the money with EVERYONE in down and EVERYONE would walk away with $82,857 before taxes. Hell, if the winner invested the money they could probably support the entire town on the interest alone?

How much you wanna bet that lucky ticket holder is getting the hell out of Dodge A.S.A.P.? Also, seriously? South Dakota has a city town named Winner?!
