Red Bud, Illinois is a sleepy little town, just a few miles up the road from where I live. This is a sparsely populated farming community where most folks are related to most other folks.

It's a sure bet, that someone I know, or their close relative is now Mega Rich ! I could even be so lucky as to be related to the winner of the Lottery. Or maybe an old, close friend, or an acquaintance I did a small favor for sometime. I should be so lucky....

In anycase, we're all waiting by the TV, hoping that the winner is our next door neighbor or someone, anyone we know. It's like a second-chance lottery. Exciting really.
