CEOs and Excessive Pay?

An [AP article]( just posted indicates that half of S&P500 CEOs get over $8.3M/year in pay. The article opens with this zinger of a line:

> A new Associated Press calculation shows that compensation for America’s top CEOs has skyrocketed into the stratospheric heights of pro athletes and movie stars: Half make more than $8.3 million a year, and some make much, much more.

I’m not saying that $8.3M/year isn’t a high amount of money, but in all fairness, comparing CEOs to pro athletes and movie stars is a bit odd. I’m pretty sure the average CEO does more work than either. (Yeah, so the athletes and movie stars sell tickets, but the CEOs sell stock)

It’s about time

Looks like U.S. Money will finally have different colors for different denominations of bills starting with the $20. I say it's about time! See story at CNN/Money.
