Letters to the Editor

Why not outraged?

To the Editor:

Thank you for your editorial view about Patrick McNulty being allowed to cash in 80 days of unused vacation time at a cost of $47,479 to Illinois taxpayers.

Yet, you said nothing about the article on the front page of your Business section in the same day’s paper about Motorola wasting $30 million of taxpayers’ money on the former Harvard campus.

According to my calculations, the ratio of McNulty’s unused vacation pay to Motorola’s $30 million cost to Illinois taxpayers is 0.00158, which is 0.158 percent.

Why are you not more outraged at Motorola’s actions than at McNulty’s cashing in of unused vacation pay – days that he could have taken but decided to work instead?

Please do not look at government vs corporate issues as only black and white. Thank you, again.
