Solomon Jackson Jr. of Columbia has broke the record for the largest jackpot in South Carolina history. The best part of his $260 million story? He says he wasn't even looking to win, just wanted to help support education.
While I wonder if Jackson relaizes just how much of his $2 spent on the S.C. Education Lottery actually goes to education, you can't help but feel the guy deserves the win.
Usually I don't think much of these "come meet the winner" stories, but in this case the man is truly interesting.
