As Powerball fever grips the nation, the prize now a historic 623 million, I have this recurring fantasy of 300 million Americans each winning 2 dollars, and that the collective sigh as 300 million people realize they have to share that prize would push us out of orbit just enough to stop global warming, and that at that moment Rush Limbaugh, fresh off a new skree in which he bullies a woman or minority, an Occupy protester or a Union worker, would leap into the air as he cheered his verbal pummeling of someone weaker and lacking a voice would be catapulted into space. I know, I know, it is an impossible fantasy which could never happen in a million years. What a rediculous thought. Rush Limbaugh can’t jump!
