Autumn Erhard's million-dollar win on Wheel of Fortune has set off a small alarm clock for media types, and a wave of stories has washed over Google News. The account from ABC offers some nice quotes from Autumn:
No one could believe it! They [her parents and fiancé] were just off stage and couldn't see what my prize was. They were celebrating the fact that I solved the puzzle. They kept asking me how much I won, and I had to keep repeating it because no one believed me at first.A grace note is that Autumn and her fiancé can really use the money because he's in construction, an industry that has seen better days. But most anybody can use a million bucks, even after the taxman visits. Congratulations to the big winner.
