Agree...totally obscene....no one person is worth that amount of money no matter what job they do. Ridiculous, digusting and just plain GREEDY. And, let's face it, greed is the downfall of our Country....sad state of affairs.

How uneducated are you all about the corporate world? What he makes is very modest compared to many other publicly-traded company CEOs. Also, check in to how well Murphy Oil is doing right now. And why would Murphy put $50 million in a trust, then invest $130K to the El Do Chamber, then move to Houston? The sh*t people talk out their @ss on this site. Hilarious...

Figures. Welcome to america where the job with the least ammount of actual work usually pays the highest.

Should have split that 15 million between all the employees that work there. You know, the ones who actually do the work.

Tell you what, start up your own company, issue an IPO, then watch the cash roll in. So you are saying a CEO's job has the "least amount of work?" Have at it, chief

And just think about that. All of that money they paid him, they could put back into the community. See, Murphy tries to make themselves look good by throwing in some chump change to the city, while a few really reap the benefits. That just means that Murphy could do more for this area. But in all, it will be a sad day when they leave (notice, I said when they leave).
