Two Different News Stories

(1) Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) on Monday said Chairman and Chief Executive Henry M. Paulson Jr. received total compensation of about $38.8 million in 2005. (2) On March 12, 2004, someone shot and killed four people in eastern McKinney. Police are still looking for who killed Matthew Self, 17; Austin York, 18; Mark Barbosa, 25; and his aunt, Rosa Barbosa, 46. The current reward for tips leading to an indictment is $37,500. I'm not good at math, but I think the reward is 1/1000 of Paulson's salary. But I could be wrong.

Your math is ok. BTW if you consider Paulson's salary on a daily basis, he could cover the reward with about 2 hour's pay. Hummm, do you think many people are worth $18,600 an hour? Even local lawyers don't get that much.

Well consider this... Bill Gates gets paid $578.23 a second. That should put it into perspective.
