I don't find these salaries to be particularly outrageous, especially if the person has a lot of education and/or has been in the job a long time. Personally, I don't think our fire and police staff could be paid enough for the risks they take to keep us safe.

Well Thank you AnnMarie, that kind of sentiment is what Police and Fire have been riding to their fat pensions while you and I will be greeters at WalMart when we "retire" on our private sector 401(k) plans.
