HOW MUCH MONEY IS THE EXXON DUDE REALLY GETTING

Folks, meet Lee Raymond, retiring as chairman of Exxon. Man, he's getting one heck of a package - something to the tune of $400 million. How coincidental can that be with the skyrocketing price of gasoline over the past month?! Regular unleaded in Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts averages near $2.90 a gallon, and will hit the $3 mark soon.
On a lighter note, a report on the Late Show with David Letterman stated that Raymond will only be receiving $20 million. The other $380 million will be used for research on how to drill the oil from his enormous neck.
