There's something fishy in the state of Illinois: 32 keeps getting selected. It happens every night. The public wants to know what's going on, the media want to know who's to blame, and the tall and stately Claudia Higginson loses her job as lottery drawing hostess. Numerologists, math professors and Native American activists step forward to explain the situation, and the government sets up a commission. But 32 goes right on winning. Narrator Monk Lewis puts it in sports terms: q32 is making a statement! Delivering a message! He wants respect!q remarks that infuriate his 29-year-old daughter, Karen, and his friend Hector Martinez. She's a gender equity specialist, and he's a middle-aged Mexican-American grandfather. In their eyes, 32 is just a number, a symbolic representation of a value. They claim that numbers do not have personalities, but how would they know? Neither of them plays the lottery. Of course 32 has a personality. Why else would it continue to win?Hea#39;d wanted her to have it in case she ever had car trouble, and we talked awhile about the area around Fort ... I was prepared to give her my mousetrap instructions, but asked first about the things she couldna#39;t tell me while she was at work.
