Fuglie compares North Dakota's energy boom to winning the lottery

“We’ve been so poor for so long, then all of a sudden, we won the goddamn lottery. You know what happens to lottery winners ... you read about them three years later. They’re in court, or they’re in bankruptcy, or they’re divorced ... that’s the way we are.”

- Jim Fuglie, a former state tourism director and former head of the state Democratic-Nonpartisan League Party
