It's ridiculous that celebrities, professional athletes, wayward CEOs, superintendents, college presidents and college coaches make as much money as they do.
Not a one of them endures a tenth the risk or effort that our soldiers, police officers or firefighters accept each day. Why, a collectively stupid society appreciates the former group and takes the second group for granted.
If Americans refused to spend $7.50 a movie ticket and $30+ for a nose-bleed stadium seat, celebrities and jocks would make much less. If boards were more concerned about actual qualifications and potential in their CEOs rather than desperately bidding for and begging for the "big names", CEOs would make a lot less. The same can be said of the others.
It's all supply and demand.
