WRAL is reporting (from the Fayetteville Observer story) that twelve of the state's poorest counties were in the top 25 for highest per capita sales of N.C. lottery tickets.  Only three of the wealthiest were.

Most regrettable response:
Greg Taylor, chairman of the Bladen County Board of Commissioners, was surprised by the per capita spending amount, but said the county ultimately could benefit from the lottery when proceeds are disbursed to education programs.
