    More wisdom from retired CSR Howard Walker in Coeur d'Alene:

    At the top right hand corner of page 17 of the New York Post, January 24, 2009, was a column entitled, "Replacing Michelle" in the National Review, The Week. Here it is, as it appeared, below:

    "Some employees are simply irreplaceable. Take Michelle Obama: The University of Chicago Medical center hired her in 2002 to run 'programs for community relations, neighborhood outreach, volunteer recruitment, staff diversity and minority contracting'.

    In 2005 the hospital raised her salary from $120,000 to $317,000 - nearly twice what her husband made as a Senator. Her husband, Barak Obama, had just become a US Senator. He requested a $1 million earmark for the UC Medical Center, in fact. Way to network, Michelle!

    Now that Mrs. Obama has resigned, the hospital says her position will remain unfilled. How can that be, if the work she did was vital enough to be worth $317,000? Let me add that Michelle 's position was a part time, 20 hour a week job."

    My thoughts: How did this bit of quid pro quo corruption escape the sharp reporters that dug through Sarah Palin's garbage and kindergarten files?

    TRUTHMATTERS ? what bullshit....

    She wasn't the CEO or CFO like Dick Cheney. Her hospital doesn't get government contracts. She's a very little fish in the scheme of things.
