Will wonders never cease? With “A better way to ‘reform' the Pennsylvania Lottery” (Feb. 3 and TribLIVE.com), Joseph Sabino Mistick actually had a column that had an idea with some potential.

His idea for the state lottery being run by a management firm set up by the state's pension boards to use the profits to reduce a pension deficit of $41 billion has merit.

I guess a blind squirrel can find a nut. It looks like Joe did. Now, if those in Harrisburg will follow up on the idea, we might have something.
