ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I'm happy for the Powerball winners. I really am. I just wish I could have walked away with a little bit of the prize. One or two million would have been just fine.

But life goes on after losing the lottery. The frenzy is over until the next big jackpot arrives.

It's fun to dream a little as long as you don't buy too many tickets.

Lottery ticket sales really do generate millions for public education. That is a good thing.

I just hope students learn the lesson about life after losing the lottery. It will happen to them someday if they buy a ticket.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
