63. Some of us are in that business
Edited on Tue Nov-13-07 11:11 AM by Oak2004
(more or less - 99% retired, 100% unpaid) and can't even imagine ever making $69,000/year at it, let alone $69 mil.

That ain't preaching. That's pornography.

Money porn.

A brief description of how the job description is supposed to work. I spent three of the last four days sitting with someone watching comedies on my Comcast On-Demand, roughly 12 hours each day. Why? The person has a excruciating facial nerve disorder, is waiting for treatment, and is nearly suicidal.

Total profit to myself? Well, I bought the pizza, and am picking up the tab on the movies.

The good Reverends mentioned in the above article would rather tell persons in severe pain to donate their food money and TV sets to their "ministry".
