The people of Detroit, Michigan are living in a world I only know from Mad Max movies.

BOISE, Idaho (KLIX) As the Powerball jackpot reaches half a billion dollars, Idaho Lottery officials are again reminding people to play responsibly. The estimated jackpot for Saturday is expected to be $478 million.
Reuters reported nobody won Powerball Saturday night. Estimates are that the total could end up over $1.3 billion by the time it's drawn again. Let's do some math, shall we? If you won that Powerball, you could buy the Perrine Bridge 31 times.
Brothers Bill and Mike Edson were in Boise Tuesday to claim a $1 million prize from the Idaho Lottery. Bill is from Twin Falls, and his brother Mike is from Salt Lake City. Their ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball number itself for Saturday night’s draw.
