I'm an idiot

Or, more specifically, Craig Edward Amshal is an idiot. After he failed his board exams in surgery, he availed himself of the option of reviewing his answers, and then wrote down questons and sold them on E-bay. The astute Dr. Amshal
sold two or three sets of questions for $180 to $300, said his lawyer, David R. Dearden.
By my calculations grossing some $360 to $900. Of course, word of this sale got out and Dr. Amshal has lost his board certifications and
agreed to pay $36,000, the estimated cost of assembling teams of surgeons to go through the process of creating and testing new questions.
Quite a deal, wouldn't you say?
