Is this a forum for national issues? Non-profit issues? Executive
IMO no, its not, so I suppose we'll just have to agree to disagree. My
'job' is to help make fine young men out of 'my' Cubs. It is not to extol
the virtues of, nor to defend National (or Jere) and it is not to question
(nor commend) the job he is doing, nor judge whether or not he has earned
his salary. Your job may indeed be different and your idea of what your job
is may be different, which is ok by me.

Its not my 'job' to answer that question. If someone asked me about his
salary, Id be likely to say something along the lines of: "I really dont
know much about it, but Im sure that if you call Mike at the Council
office, he'll have access to the resources that can provide the answers to
any questions you have. If youll excuse me, I need to help Tommy with his
double half hitch, but Ill be happy to chat with you after the meeting."
