The luckiest man in Michigan (which is a little like the World’s Tallest Midget) won a million dollar cash lottery for the second time. The real money: when he writes a book called “How to Win the Lottery” and a million suckers buy it.

Asshole of the Week: The New Republic reporter who keeps pushing the idea that Elizabeth Warren should run against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
