Being the Highest Paid CEOs

The Associated Press listed the Top 10 CEOs for 2008 at Standard & Poor's 500 companies.

1. Aubrey McClendon, Chesapeake Energy Corp., $112.5 million

2. Sanjay Jha, Motorola Inc., $104.4 million

3. Robert Iger, Walt Disney Co., $51.1 million

4. Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., $42.9 million

5. Kenneth Chenault, American Express Co., $42.9 million

6. Vikram Pandit, Citigroup Inc., $38.2 million

7. Steven Farris, Apache Corp., $37.2 million

8. Louis Camilleri, Philip Morris International Inc., $36.9 million

9. Kevin Johnson, Juniper Networks Inc., $36.1 million

10. Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase & Co., $35.7 million

Is there something strange about this list?

Beside the fact of the obscene amounts of money being paid these people, HALF of the human race is missing from it----WOMEN!!!!

Bravo, Marion! I had not thought about women! Great! What I noticed readily is that 4 of the 10 had received a bailout in the billions!!!
