$9 million! OMG, how's he going to live? Can we start up a fund to collect money for him? Maybe we each need to make meals for him and deliver them to his house? Oh, yea that wouldn't work since he most likely lives in a gated community!

Only $9 million? How is this poor guy Rowe expected to survive? His wife (or boyfriend) is probably replacing all of his incandescent light bulbs as we speak with high efficiency florescent light bulbs. John has got to get that electric bill down to where he can afford it. Next, he will have his chauffer checking the air pressure in his limo's tires so that he can save on his gas bill at the pump.

David Axelrod, Obama and Daley's campaign manager and now Obama's senior advisor, is an Exelon lobbyist. Just thought it's important to get that out there. Big shock that their CEO isn't getting his salary capped.

I thought I saw Mrs Rowe today at the local Aldi. She was muttering something about having to make ends meet this year..

So am I supposed to feel sorry for this guy? Um...I don't think so.

Maybe if something REALLY bad happens to him, I'll have some sympathy.

But it would have to be really bad. I mean awful. Grisly, even. Really.

You would feel just as sad for Exelon COO Christopher Crane who lives out in St. Charles. Afterall, who among us would want to have the burden of building and now living in an 8000+ stone house with slate roof, copper gutters and down spouts, gas lamps,$100K pool and landscaped with full-sized trees and shrubs? Makes me weep every time I see it.

Let's bus 50 homeless people out to St. Charles, drop them off in front of Crane's house, tell them there's food inside, and drive away.
