Salary Comparison: Bo Black vs. Don Smiley With a Side of Sexism?

I distinctly remember any number of brouhahas over the salaries commanded by a very will respected and very successful Bo Black during her years running Summerfest…but while her successor, Don Smiley, who has allowed attendance to drop although overseeing major improvements in the festival grounds, has been paid three times Ms. Black’s salary, not so much noise. THREE TIMES her salary…other than the ridiculous amount Mr. Smiley is pulling down…might there be just a bit of sexism in the plaints against Ms. Black’s salary while generally the largesse granted Mr. Smiley is being pooh poohed? I’d think so!
