“No, I’m Paid Enough; No, Really, Thank You”
The Times-Picayune reports that top members of Mayor Ray Nagin’s administration have had their payraises rescinded. The T-P was informed that the administrators themselves individually requested their own pay increase be rolled back. (I detect skepticism radiating faintly from the page, but decide for yourself.) The administrators were already receiving six-figure salaries, so if your pity is scarce, you may want to keep it in reserve.
