EJO I'm not sure but I think you totally misread me wrt salaries and educational levels. When there is a blizzard and your home heater has failed, a good plumber may be worth more than a lawyer, even if the plumber has seven years less schooling. I know folks with widely varying amounts of formal education versus training or career time, and can only say the formal education mandated (or encouraged) for some is a waste.

After all, if no one took our trash away, we'd be buried and dead in it before we needed tax accountants or fancy doctors, wouldn't we? The value systems are all screwed up. For income, education, and taking care of kids, among so many other things.
