...the hospital is eliminating 15 senior executive jobs, including vice president for community and external affairs, a position that had been by incoming First Lady Michelle Obama.Which is too bad, because it was a well-paying job - $316,962 a year. I wanted to apply for it!
A former executive at the hospital described her as "worth her weight in gold."
How much, exactly, does she weigh?
And what's the price of gold today?
(I know, it's just a metaphor,
a rather dead one, quite a bore,
but I admit to twisted glee
in taking such words literally.)
