That's exactly what happened in Kentucky when they started a lottery.  They advertsed that the lottery money would go into the education fund and we voted for it.  I lived there when that happened (in the '80s).  They took the lottery money and put it into the education fund; however, they cut money in the education fund by the same amount.  It kind of pissed everyone I knew off when that happened.

Then I moved to Georgia and when the lottery went to a vote, I was completely against it thinking Georgia would do the same thing (lived there in the early '90s).  However, Georgia did it right.  They created the Hope Scholarship which was used to pay for HS students going to a state-sponsored college, as long as they had a 3.0 average out of HS and maintained it (at least I think that's the average).  Then they found out they had extra money coming in from the lottery and used it to pay for books for college students (when I left it was $100 per semester for books).

So, I've seen one state do it right and one state do it wrong.  Not sure if Kentucky ever changed or not.
Nope. Still wallowing in a half assed and underfunded state education system here.

Won't met me read it. But I know what I see, and the economy here still sucks. There are basically zero manufacturing, blue collar style jobs in Mississippi. And I know that we, at least, have been passed over multiple times in this regard.

There are some moving south, but you don't sell your teeth to buy corn.

Govna Bentley also said that the nation should follow Alabama's example.

I could go for a lottery, but If elected governor I would promote agriculture and tourism with the legalization of marijuana.  Roll Tide.  We would all be kings of canabis.

Pro-tip of the day; when reading the WSJ, if it will not let you read the article w/o paying first, simply copy the title of the article in question, google it, click on the link, and BOOM, there the entire article is for you to read.

There is always a way around these paywalls; just a matter of finding it.

(10) Ole Miss Rebels  3-0  (1-0)
