TheOtherGuy: To those of you saying that the figure doesn't seem particularly outrageous, let me enlighten you.At many schools, presidents are provided with a (usually luxurious) home, one or more vehicles or a car service, full-ride insurance similar to what Congress gets (i.e., none of the BS deductibles and copays and other things peons have to deal with, and NO employee contribution even if their whole family is covered), and a very generous travel and expense account (he is supposed to travel and raise money, of course). Oh, and all of their kids can attend for free, immediately as opposed to after a year or more that most employee's kids have to wait.At the last school where I worked, I think the president was lucky if he had to pay for groceries in his personal fridge, and maybe clothes (hell, he probably expensed much of that). ALL of his other bills, housing, transportation, insurance, and utilities, were all paid by the school on top of his salary, which was above the figure given in TFA. He didn't own his own car or home, but he had no bills and a very high 6-figure salary.And, after 7 years of this guy giving excuse after excuse about why empty positions couldn't be filled, and no raises, COLA or otherwise, could be considered, they still wondered why we have a 'morale problem'.
