Windowseat:

<<<And this was not some enlisted man with only a high school education.>>>

"A doctor, which implies that he has had access to information regarding finances. It doesn't mean he used the information, just that he had access to it."

Agreed, but it also means that he some firepower to understand it if he chose to review it.

"Although, people who don't have a higher education can still be careful with their money."

No doubt. Agreed.

"Getting the degree doesn't automatically make them careful in regard to reading contracts."

Agreed.

I simply noted the foregoing because I find it more diffcult to feel sympathy for one who has the ability and chooses not to use it, than one without the same ability who is more easily flummoxed.
