Summary
A prominent scholar once noted that lotteries in politics & society--to break vote ties, assign students to schools, draft people into the military, select juries--are 'at first thought absurd, & at second thought obvious.' Lotteries have been part of politics since the Greek & Roman times, & they are used widely in American politics today
