here is a great story from the mpls tribune of last week.

the state of minnesota, like most states is in debt. lots of debt.

but, the head librarian for the state wanted to do a symposium to encourage=
use of libraries.

now, hear this: she paid an author $45,000 to do a four
hour lecture. audience, under 500 people.

that ain't seed corn. and we wonder where the money is going?
hell, i would have done it for a hundred bucks.
