Ah, that'll be because they did such a fabulous job.
This is my favourite bit: 'Mr Lindberg received $3 million for less than five months of service last year.'
That's about $30,000 per working day.
What could you do with $30,000 a day?
What could 100 drought-ruined wheat farmers do with it, if they shared it around? Or the Smith Family? The CFS? East Timor?
