Lynn and Money: Someone else's problem.

For someone who clearly likes money and all the benefits it brings, Lynn does seem not to know too much about the worlds of finance and business. Clearer minds than mine have already pointed out her over-simplifications and misinterpretations of the book contract the Delicate Genius recently received. That's just an extreme symptom of her 'illness'. The 'disease' I'm talking about the fact that basic money-management skills are regularly ignored. MOST of the Pattersons seem to believe the world runs on promises and lollipops and that budgeting is the tool of the devil, for it forces them to deny their whims of the present for a future they may never see. This odd way of looking at money, of course, comes from her antiquated notion that women have no place in the business world and must perforce leave all that mumbo-jumbo with their loving husbands. This means her agent handles the publishers and her loot while she basically lives on an allowance. Her many glaring errors in depicting Mike's financial life stem from the fact she's put trousers on what she'd do.
