The Albuquerque Journal continues its quirky crusade to insist on all levels of government posting the salaries of all public employees. It is bizarre to need to know what a janitor makes at UNM, but they think it is important. They basically think the need for people to know this rests on the case that government controls information and power and that we ought to know what those denizens all make in the way of wages.
So, once again I call on the Journal to make public the wages of all of their employees, right down to the janitors(unless they have given that assignment to the beat reporters.) After all, they control the flow of information and power too. Don't give me that fluff about it not being government and not being required. Their right wing stands make them a better case for knowing who makes what.
And they don't even do their real jobs. How can they have a front page story on the Governor's little crash landing without knowing that the private pilot had another incident just a year or two ago? Will they at least look into it? Or is it up to the bloggers? Oh, and on a final transparency note, I make no salary or advertising revenue from my blog.
