Your math is fine -- it's English usage that you seem to have
forgotten. "Next highest" -- i.e., highest but for the one that was
initially identified as the highest. You seem to be thinking of "next higher."
Also, I don't believe it was Jason who posted the bit you quoted --
if memory serves, it was Mark.
