1862 Currency

I love stories like this. A town spending money on a salary analysis that costs as much as the salary increase – they ended up approving! Fantastic. If only I got to write about such things, but not in an article rife with spelling errors, Boston.com.

  1. Thanks for article – it was difficult getting through the long, drawn out article with all the errors. Writer must have been paid by the word for it could have been made briefer.
