Reader Opinion: An old adage on greed applies

There is an old adage that applies to Crow Wing Power CEO Bruce Kramer's $1.9 million bonus (his yearly salary was $200,000) as well as five members of their Board of Directors' vote to give themselves $70,000 for Board work on Hunt Technologies.

That adage is "Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered!"

Unfortunately, until our local legislators and politicians finally do something about creating laws that would prevent such abuses, neither Kramer nor Board members of Crow Wing Power will get the message, they will just continue to get fat!
