Lottery For Mike E?

The question on many news sites minds is will Mike Easley get his Educational Lottery?

There are many for or against a lottery, and many (like me), who can take it or leave it. My concern is that the lottery money would go to education, but not in the way we think it would. It should be earmarked specifically for K-12. Also, using the lottery money could mean that less money is coming out of the General fund towards education, and going towards Easley’s pet projects. See this post of mine regarding what other states have done with their lotteries. It isn’t pretty.
