This warms my heart. Many of these professors should take "Shovel Methodologies 201: Principals and Use."

If you can't find enough people to pay for your services without resorting to extortion, you need to be laid off.

i agree with GmX's sentiment... teachers and administrators both make salaries way out of line in terms of what they should be making, and higher education costs way too much.  I see tuition reductions and college downsizing in the future, and I am also predicting closure of colleges and universities.  Wouldn't be surprised to see a very large public school shut down, something like UMinnesota or Washington State or Boston University.  I definitely see a potential for contraction in boston...

Here is an article from SF Gate titled "Even in recession, UC spends big on top brass"

Last week, for example, the governing Board of Regents appointed two executives at salaries of more than $350,000 a year and authorized paid administrative leaves to two former campus chancellors - one receiving $402,200 a year and the other $315,000.
