"Not lucrative"

The New York Times notes about Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin:

Neither Ms. Abedin nor Mr. Weiner earn lucrative salaries, and Ms. Abedin is worried about her husband, who has been in politics much of his adult life, finding work. Mr. Weiner would still be eligible to collect his pension after his resignation.

Interesting choice of terminology by the Times -- not "lucrative." The couple's combined salary (as of last year) is $310,000. But ... according to President Obama and the Democrat Party, people making over $250,000 ... are "rich!"

But no one ever said the Times was consistent ... or fair, for that matter.

My heart bleeds for them -- as we teachers here in Texas face the prospect of furloughs and salary cuts to go along with larger classes and fewer resources. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/7613999.html

$310,000 AND each of them travels the world on all expense paid (by us) junkets, staying at five star hotels.

my heart bleeds for them.
