Sure, I could blow $3 million easily, and have the taste to do it. Let's see, that would buy a median price house in my town, or a couple of pretty nice Ferraris (maybe a 250 TdF and 250 SWB, but not enough to buy a 250 GTO or TR -- don't really want a GTO anyway, but sure would like a TR).

As I wrote in my earlier post, I can imagine cases where this amount of money is amassed without knowlege of how to manage it, it just seems unlikely. Even rock stars and sports figures usually have someone to advise them, though that advice may be self-serving. I think it's the rare physician, dentist, or attorney who would amass such funds, especially without a concerted effort to invest wisely.

So glibly saying there are many such cases as some of the posters did, doesn't cut it for me. I think a put-on is more likely. Now, let's talk about this bridge I have for sale . . .
