Senator Harper wants forgiveness

Say it ain't so. The lottery was the result of so many "good intentions" by so many people!! Hey, maybe the lesson here is that there are many problems that government can NOT solve? Maybe there are some problems best solved by independent, sovereign citizens.

"I've asked the Lord to forgive me for that," (Voting FOR the lottery) Harper said yesterday.

Harper said one of the reasons she is so disappointed is because the state has been "very, very stingy" with providing scholarship funds to students and has been resistant to lowering standards to allow more students the ability attend college or have less debt.

The senator has encouraged poor people to stop playing the lottery.

"It's poor people who lack resources who are playing the lottery in hopes of winning and it's their kids who are not getting scholarships," Harper said. "So they need to stop playing. They need to buying computers and dictionaries."
