Now I am all for freedom of the press, and for taxpayers freedom to know what their tax dollars pay for, but I don't quite know how I feel about this yet. What is your opinion of the newspaper publishing everyone's salary in a easy to use database? The database is available <a href="http://www.chron.com/databases/publicemployeepay.html?&RecordID=&PageID=2&PrevPageID=2&cpipage=1&CPIsortType=asc&CPIorderby=TOTAL"> here</a> Unfortunately you cannot search by job title, and I have not gone through the whole thing looking for librarian. The Houston library site did have a few names in their contacts section I looked up. I kind of think the bilingual spokeswoman is underpaid, however I think the director is probably spot on. The HPL has a very nicely presented website by the way.
