My issue came today. I was so happy to see some Smallvilel coverage. But those salaries are outrageous- can you believe what Kiefer Sutherland makes? No actor (not even my beloved Tommy!) is worth that! How about they spread some of that money to teachers, cops and firefighters?

Some of them are pretty mind-boggling, aren't they? And I've read that Kiefer makes as much as a producer as he does as an actor! I didn't include the list for comedy shows, but Charlie Sheen makes $875,000 per episode for Two and a Half Men! O_o

Completely mind boggling. AS the daughter of two teachers, I know full well that the salaries were crap, at least back then. And as a New Yorker, there were stories in the paper all of the time how cops had to take second jobs, and get loans because they couldn't afford their equipment otherwise. It's just pathetic, what actors and athletes are paid, for essentially playing make believe, or playing with a ball.

As a society, we certainly value our pretty diversions highly, don't we?

We certainly do. It's pretty sad.

its all relative, if the network is making millions of dollars off of a show, the people responsible have to be compensated appropriately. People love to be entertained even at great cost, what can you do?

I doubt there's anything we can do. And really, I have no objections to athletes and actors being paid- I'm just outraged that they make so much. It just seems so ludicrous.
