Post Vilifies NYPL Pensioners

Today's NY Post claims New York Public Library retirees are collecting enormous pensions! Actually, the article reveals that two former librarians are receiving the 7th and 9th highest pensions in the state and a total of 1,128 library retirees are taking in $21.6 million. Let's see now...$21.6 million divided by 1,128 comes to a whopping $19,148! Those book-lovers sure are a greedy bunch. (Fair warning: some of the comments are rather demoralizing.)
