You guys are making way too much out of a simple comment. The whole line was stupid. But insert anything (cheerleader, toll collector, aviator, swimmer, mailman, etc) as a non-economics expert, and it is just as unfair. A brain surgeon is no more able to discuss economics than a figure skater. All these posts about skaters who have degrees is hysterical! Since when does having a college degree equate to an understaning of the economy? I know people with doctorate degrees who can not tell you anything about economic affairs. And I can show you an people who never got beyond highschool that are far more versed because they avidly read newspapers and follow the news.
It's one thing to disagree with a comment. But to write off a show because of that one random comment is just silly! If you like the show, then who cares?
I mean no disrespect to those of you that were offended. I just personally would rather devote my e-mail efforts to my local legislators on laws that can affect change.
