Stick-up at UM

By Joel Thurtell

Two ways to make it big.

There’s singer Petey Pablo‘s way: Put the money in the bag before I blow your head off.

And there’s University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman’s way:

Parley your fancy title and $585,000 UM base pay (2011) into a seat on the board of a Big Pharm firm and collect $230,000 a year for attending a few meetings at Johnson & Johnson.

Petey’s way is a bit more graphic than the genteel gimme of Coleman.

Other than the lingo, what’s the diff?
