I'm going buggy. Citi got bailed out this morning, over the weekend they announced that they were just fine, their assets were secure - and this morning...a big fat bail-out.
What I want to know is who exactly is doing the math here?
Speaking of math. My darling niece is attending a state university. The university is having serious financial difficulties. The FBIS (Fat Boy In Suit) who has the groovy job of running the U makes $888,000 a year, he's taking a little heat about his salary so he's opted not to accept his most recent bonus/cost of living increase? Isn't that nice of him, but he's made it clear he's not willing to accept a decrease in his salary.
Oh My Giant Bucket of Crap!
$888,000 % 12 = $74,000. each and every month..think about it...one guy, driving up to the bank window to deposit his monthly paycheck - it's freaky people....just plain freaky!
It's a state university... our state is pretty much bankrupt.
I know I know, our country is full of these people.
Last week the news was full of reports about pirates off the coast of Somalia taking over oil tankers and holding them for ransom.
In my mind this guy is no different than those pirates.
Perhaps it's time for a little bit of mutiny on this ship called the USA Bounty?
Sorry about the rant, I had to get it out.
UW President Mark Emmert makes $905,000 a year according to the Seattle Times.
Sorry 'bout not having my facts straight, I mean really...what's $17,000 among friends.
Well Mark, that's what a lot of folks live on for a whole year.
