Yes, saleries are not bad here.  My sister-in-law, head of drama dept at Oak
Park-River Forest High school, makes 85,000 and her husband, head of history
dept, makes another 86.  Of course, expenses are a tad higher, too, and the
only guy really making dough is the IRS agent!

I'm still pining for those 35 cent Sunday dinners...
