You're losing some depth in this discussion. Try this set of binoculars. ;-)

In addition to society memberships, other professionals may have additional
expences (licensing, malpractice insurance, diagnostic equipment)...

Say--are we comparing apteryx and orangutans here?

Dan;

You may be looking in the correct end of the telescope; however, you're
pointing it at the wrong target;^) I believe that the point was
relating the cost of STC to a personal budget. $100 + event charges
(such as meals) is $100 or more regardless of what Nurses, Engineers,
Doctors, or Janitors pay to their cartels! If I can only afford 100k
for a house and the house I'm interested in is 125k, what do I care if
the other houses are all over 200k?
