    LMAO! Ain’t that the truth. maybe they should have waited for Drayton. (Psst, hey Doug, it would be a good time to sneak in the Biennale1)

    Why sneak? Benbo’s “Silent Majority” has already approved it 😉

    I might have given Dougie a break, however an article in todays RECORD reminded me of him.
    According to estimates given in THE RECORD, the King of Cambridge makes a cool $135,193 per year.
    To be fair, there are plenty of civil servants who make a killing. The king makes more than some – less than others.
    I decided to do a little math.
    When I broke the figures down, I found the Mr. Craig makes $370.30 every day of the year. Even on the days he is off – Christmas, Sundays and so on.
    That works out to $15.43 every hour of the day – even when he is sleeping.
    If Doug were to go see a 2 hour play at the Drayton Theatre, he would earn $30.86 to attend. That’s a good deal since I’m betting he will get complimentary tickets along with other local politicians and members of the press.
    If Dougie leaves his desk and takes a trip to the loo, a short visit might earn him 51cents. A longer visit – maybe 2 or 3 times as much.
    Dougie, I’m sure, hates leap years. He has to work an extra day for the same money.
    Why don’t a few more of you make some calculations of your own.

    …or he makes about $1 for each Cambridge resident. Lee,I’ll personally give you your dollar back, because in my opinion he’s worth it.

    Our page views from City Hall have been dropping off. They think we are ignoring them.

    Yes Scot, $1 per resident sounds reasonable – till you realize that he took $44 from every resident to pay for Drayton. And, a similar amount for the School of Architecture.
    Hmmm, I didn’t get much for my dollar, now did I?
    Would you give me $89.00 back?

    Looks like conservative math. Was Harper your math teacher?
