The Maryland Mega Millions mystery has been solved. Three public school educators stepped forward Monday to cash in their ticket for a share of a record jackpot that topped $656 million. They wore black gloves and matching red sweatshirts and hid behind one of those giant checks -- preferring to remain anonymous in an attempt to keep at bay all those people who would like to separate the lottery winners from their money. The trio -- two public school teachers and a school administrator -- have relatively modest plans for their winnings/Renee Lynch, Los Angeles Times. More here.

Question: Are you glad a couple of working stiffs and a school administrator won the final third of the jackpot?
