Mark Bernstein talks football for a moment on his blog. What caught my eye was this:
In much of Red State America, the highest-paid public official in the entire state is the coach of the university football team.
This should be an incredible claim but isn’t really. I mean does anyone else on state payrolls receive high-six or low-seven figure salaries? Certainly not any of the people hired to govern.
So is Bernstein right? In a better world he wouldn’t be.
