time for scrutiny, everywhere

New York Library Officials’ Pay? Shhh - New York Times: Some of our public servants have, over the years, become the equivalent of nerdy rock stars and inflated their importance and their relative worth to the community along with their compensation. It's time to start taking hard looks at what we get for what we pay.
"In the world of charitable organizations and major public-private institutions, executive compensation has grown sizably in recent years. Those who defend the increased salaries contend that such costs are dictated by the marketplace for the most talented and expert people. Others, however, have complained that the often quite lucrative pay — while opaque to donors, large and small — has become excessive."
