A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Winning the lottery: Now that this couple has won the lottery, there's no reason why I shouldn't be next.


The latest winners of the California SuperLotto Plus jackpot say they haven't thought about what they'll buy for themselves, but they do know what they'll do for newborn babies.

Debi Faris-Cifelli and her husband Steve, who provide funerals for dead abandoned babies and helped inspire a California law to save unwanted newborns, won the jackpot worth $27 million on Wednesday night. They plan to take their winnings in a lump sum and will get a little less than $9 million after taxes in a check that should be issued within several weeks, lottery officials said.

The couple said they would use their winnings to continue their advocacy work, possibly by starting a college scholarship fund with awards given in the names of the 70 abandoned babies Faris-Cifelli has buried at the Garden of Angels cemetery she started in Calimesa.


Sometimes God works in mysterious ways -- other times he just sends a check.
