Lucky? – JAM

The New York State Lottery had to suspend play on the number 3569 on December 27, 1989, because it had been played by too many people. Why was it so popular? Gamblers are always looking for some lucky number and this was the number of the license plate on the truck New York Yankees manager Billy Martin was killed in days earlier. I wonder how they figured it was a lucky number; it certainly wasn’t for Martin. Incidentally, it was not a winner. The fact is our number will one day come up, and the question then will be, are you prepared? Whether by accident or sickness or natural causes death comes to each of us.
