Now, this whole Daily News constest thing sucks. They print the wrong numbers, and people who thought they won, didn’t. It’s awful, I’d be very upset. It would hurt. I believe the fine print protects them from such errors, though.
But to make it a race issue? Why? Politics, of course. He isn’t fooling me.
“The people in this room are hardworking people — nobody here is wearing an Armani suit — people who thought finally, after years of honesty, finally that they would get a piece of the American dream,” Gildin told the crowd, which packed two of the hotel’s meeting rooms.
Gildin is a lawyer involved in all this. You know what? They may be hardworking, but they didn’t work hard to win this contest. They scratched off numbers. If they had to do something like carry a 300 pound sack of rocks up 10 flights and then jump out the window into a vat of fluffernutter, then you can say that they worked hard, and were deserving of the prize.
But if we go by hard work alone, then I should be in a family of millionaires, right about now.
Sorry, life doesn’t work that way, and as the greed continues, I have less and less sympathy for the people who thought they won (some who stupidly started to spend the money already), and more for the Daily News.
