Getting hit with a gusher of wealth trumps getting hit with a gusher of water

You know what’s cool about life, besides beating the tar out of the alternative?
Its ups and downs seem to happen in fascinating defiance of all accepted laws of locomotion and gravity.
Carl Hunter lost not one but two homes in Hurricane Katrina.
I’m sure his eyes scanned the watery heavens and wondered why.
Like many so others in New Orleans who suddenly found their lives flooded with disaster, their hopes embalmed and their futures entombed, Hunter seemed to be a guy who got the figurative finger from the fickle finger of fate.
But that was then and this is now.
Carl Hunter became the largest Powerball winner in Louisiana’s history by hitting a $97 million jackpot.
Despite all the theology and philosophy, perhaps life simply is one big lottery.
