What happened to your math skills? Usually, you are on the money (honestly, the pun was unintentional at first, but I left it here after catching it) with these types of things.

Ouch! Apparently I have been influenced by the financial math used by politicians, Wall Street, and financial advice givers, where 2 plus 2 does not equal 4 and where $3000 divided by $30000 is 3%, which I believe is how they do CPI-U.

Or maybe, my brain has reached to point I need a calculator to divide 3 into 30.
