From Wikipedia: [Joe Kernan] "He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado and a masterís degree in molecular biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he worked on cancer research.[4]"

He is also a former stock broker.

He has an annual salary of $2MM and a net worth of $14MM.
Can't be THAT much of an idiot.

Living well is the best revenge!
