Dear Dave Ramsey,

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

I am enclosing a letter I wrote to the Iowa Lottery and a copy of their reply. It would be interesting to get your feedback on either of them.

You have my permission to read either on the air or to otherwise disseminate them. I’ll even waive my normal copyright fee! Hopefully the letters will amuse you as much as they did me, but admittedly, I am pretty easy to amuse.

I am nearly done with baby step one! If you felt like it you could send me like 30k and I could jump a few steps. No? Then how about an autographed photo of a book or something? Either would go a long way towards amusing me.

Dear Christopher:

Thank you for your letter. I certainly agree with you about the lottery. I call it a tax because it is a state-run program specifically designed to take money from one set of citizens and use it to provide services to state residents. In Tennessee, it is a way to finance scholarships. That may sound noble, but in practice it takes money from those less able to afford it and helps educate those who are already better off than most.

I’m not surprised that the Iowa Lottery disagreed. Proponents and employees of lotteries are always adept at ignoring the reality of what they are doing.
