datauniverse. i shouldn't have.

On the DataUniverse site (hosted by the Asbury Park Press), you can find all kinds of records, including salary data for employees of Rutgers University. I'm now an employee there, and I looked up a few salaries in my unit.

I shouldn't have, and I won't do it again. It led to a sleepless night and a grumpy morning, and there's nothing I can do about the salaries. I was grateful to get this job when I did. I'm doing good work there. I have the respect of many of my coworkers, and the enmity of others (and the good will of some people is not worth having). We have no debt; we have retirement savings; we can manage a medium-size financial emergency if it arises. And that's enough.
