That's it, I'm moving to Bell, CA : How a city manager of a small, poor CA town made $787K

If the City Administrator can earn $787,637, then surely a witty and sarcastic blogger can earn a couple hundred K, right? (And don't call me Shirley.)

I have to agree with one of the comments on this story in the SF Gate. The writer said he had always been a social liberal but things have gone too far. The trust is broken. We social liberals fully believe in addressing large social issues through large social efforts--shocking concept, huh? But, to quote someone who likely would have disagreed with most of my politics, we must "trust but verify." This man's salary began to explode a decade ago. Did no one notice? Is there no oversight for these towns? If not, there needs to be.

I suggest creating a large, well-paid state organization that will regularly investigate and audit the workings of all the smaller governments in California. That should solve some problems, right?
