The parasail in the graphic ought to be colored gold... or is it already platinum? Very few people understand what a tiny fraction of all top executives earn the hemongous sums that win headlines, disfavor, resentment and envy. Usually only NEOs of immensely profitable large organizations soar above the vast majority of small-company CEOs, start-up business founders, struggling sole proprietors and nominally-paid enterprise leaders who continue to reinvest every scarce dollar into meeting payrolls and keeping their outfits alive. The excesses of a few create a backlash against all.

Thanks for the comment Jim. You are correct in the fact that the truly eye-popping executive compensation numbers are limited to a tiny percentage of companies. Sometimes it is hard to remember that when the media happily feeds us the pablum of excess.
