"Imagine if he'd been something truly useless, like an actor."

My sentiments exactly!
The American economy is full of "legitimate" scams. The entertainment industry(Hollywood, TV, WWE, Rock&Roll, etc.)is by far the oldest, biggest and most successful.
Imagine, you're just a high school graduate and real,real pretty. You go out and learn this skill(acting)that most people I believe can learn just as well. Then work in a movie project for a couple months. The movie becomes a big hit, grosses over a billion dollars. The moguls give you $50 Million and an option to star in the sequel.
Now the best Electrical Engineer in the world with a masters degree working for a Fortune 500 company might make 5 or 6 million over a 40 year career.
Who is making a better contribution to society? The answer ....it doesn't matter!!!!
Scamming is as American as apple pie. Is this a great country or what?!?!?!?!?!?!? LOL
