    (Copied from my other post since there are multiple articles)

    six figure salaries for community theater directors? And the theater organization has hot dog sales???

    Those two "execs" take 2/3 of the $300k taken in by ticket sales!

    Am I alone in thinking that the city needs someone to clean house?

    Sooooo many heads will roll. Cushy jobs will be eliminated. Salaries will be brought back down to earth.

    Forget the blue collar thefts... worry about the white collar theft!
