Still, the clipboards aren't entirely forsaken. Far from it. At the table adjacent to the MetroLink station, dozens of seminargoers are filling out credit-card forms. Haggard after a long day of motivation, dozens of St. Louisans are pinning their hopes of getting rich quick on Stephen Pierce.

No one appears to be reading the fine print. No one seems at all perplexed by the fact that they came to see Laura Bush for $1.95 — and ended up spending $177 (plus $39 a month until it occurs to them to cancel their automatic subscription to the Investor Toolbox).

This is America, after all, and if you can't get rich quick here, well, you're obviously scared to get in the game.
