Look at it this way, these types of people getting a ham ticket are not 
in most all likely hood going to become serious hams, but they do count 
in the numbers game. So I would rather have their numbers than not, in 
case you have not noticed the numbers of hams is going down not up. 
While I agree that getting a ham license today is way to easy, if it was 
not, then there would be darn few of us left.
