Which one slashed his own salary?

In his inauguration speech, President Barack Obama waxed poetic about topics like sacrifice. While he clearly understands such a concept as an abstract, real-world follow-through has been limited to the upper quintile of American economic society; both Edward Liddy (AIG CEO) and Rick Wagoner (GM CEO) cut their own salaries to $1, yet both were harangued as convenient targets of populist anger. In GM’s case, it’s time for another party to make a sacrifice- big labor. The fact of the matter is that deposed CEO Wagoner’s salary had little impact on GM’s economic viability, while tremendous labor costs are drowning the company in red ink. Let’s look at the numbers.

TODAYPakistanis love humanity

April 18, 2002: Lahore, Pakistan. Pakistanis love humanity and live in accordance with the golden principles of Islam, Governor Salmaan Taseer said on Thursday.
The governor was talking to an eight-member Indian delegation during their reception at the Governor’s House. Bangalore-based journal Dalit Voice’s Editor Raj Shekhar was the delegation’s supervisor.
The governor said Pakistan was of extreme importance because of being the only democratic country in the Muslim world. He said the people wanted to resolve all issues with India in an amicable manner to set the grounds for a long-term partnership that could lead the neighbouring countries to prosperity.
Taseer said Pakistanis were tolerant and progressive people who had special sympathies toward downtrodden and deprived people. He said late prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto stood up for the people’s rights just like Dr Bheem Rao Umbedkar did in India. He said President Asif Ali Zardari had offered each and every school of thought to join the national mainstream to ensure no one was victimised from the political system. He said those who opposed the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) were now demanding the restoration of the 1973 Constitution.
Guests: Raj Shekhar said 1.2 billion Indians wanted the establishment of friendly ties with Pakistan. He said terrorism was not a hot topic of discussion in India, adding that only some leaders of the ruling party pointed fingers at Muslims when confronted with the roots of terrorism. He said the Indians did not agree with those who termed Muslims as terrorists, as there was a clear distinction between the two.
He said Dalit consisted of about 20 percent of India’s total population. He said Dr Umbedkar spread the message of love in the Indian society, which he said was not spreading it across the globe.
