. . . I ask that question because one must wonder what the Oklahoma Lottery is doing for The Oklahoman (aka NewsOK.com) to merit FRONT PAGE STORIES like this one in today’s Sunday paper:

NewsOK.com: How to win the lottery – by Anthony Thornton

I am amazed that this is somehow worthy of a front page story, because it seems more like an ad for the Lottery (giving ticket buyers the false hope that they can somehow figure out a way to outsmart the lousy odds of the lottery.

(In the good ol’ days, E.K. Gaylord would use his notorious front page editorials to push conservative candidates for office but at least he had the good taste to put “AN EDITORIAL” at the top of the piece. Today’s Oklahoman has a hit a new low of sleaziness.)
