$53,402.50 per win (so far)

So, according to official reports, JoePa

was paid $427,220 in the first 10 months of 2007-- putting his year-end salary on track to exceed $500,000. He was paid $490,638 last year, according to the retirement system.
Now that's a good government job for you.

For comparison purposes the President of the United States makes $400,000, which is fair considering that Joe's record vs. the current administration is pretty good. If G.W.B. had the same record, we would still be losing in Iraq, but we would have won in Afghanistan, Iran, and probably France.

Joe also knows when to punt.

Penn State fans by comparison, however, are far more sensible but equally rabid as the GOP. They are also snazzier dressers.

Penn State has also never bugged Pitt's offices without a warrant.

So, in sum: Joe Paterno should probably be president. Couldn't be any worse.

Yes it could be worse, Kerry could be President.

No Joe is broke. On his measly $500,000 a year salary he has reported to have donated well over $4 million dollars. So his $50,000 per win = $0.00

JoePa is not a state employee, actually, since PSU is a "state-related" university like Pitt and Temple, not actually owned by the Commonwealth like Slippery Rock, et. al. But say what you want about Pitt, we've at least always known what the administrators' salaries are, because those get published in the IRS 990 forms. For some reason, PSU is exempt from filing these forms, even though they are a 501(c)(3) and not a government entity. I'm wondering why that is.

In fact, I hereby submit a formal request to find out why that is. Since you're a bureaucrat, I fully expect a form letter within 10 business days informing me that my request is under legal review and therefore automatically extended for another 30 days. If you screw up my request, I expect to have to resubmit the whole request again, rinse and repeat.

Sorry Felix; that's not my department.
