'Armageddon' and Klein's Salary

The new salary for the chairman of the California stem cell agency, Robert Klein, has caught the attention of Nature magazine, which headlined its article on the subject: "Salary for CIRM head despite deficit, Outcry as stem cell agency puts chairman on payroll."

Erika Check Hayden
wrote that CIRM directors approved the $150,000, halftime salary "even as the state plunges deeper into financial crisis." The term "financial Armageddon" also was quoted as coming from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who had expressed "deep concern" about the possibility of a salary prior to its approval last Wednesday by directors.

Nature magazine says it has 377,443 readers worldwide, mostly senior scientists and executives.
