Michelle O Leaves Job: No Replacement Sought

Musta been a really, really, really CRITICAL position, eh?

She hasn’t shown up for work very regularly over the last year or so, so when Michelle Obama’s $300,000 job was cut at the University of Chicago Hospitals, it may have been hard to notice the difference. Crain’s skipped the part about the incoming First Lady, must have been an oversight in their expert analysis of Chicago Business, because we know Crain’s is “Not show business. All business”.

The Tribune announced the layoff without much analysis, but let the cat far enough out of the bag to prompt our Don Rose to question how important Michelle Obama’s job must have been, as it was so easily eliminated. was 'critical' for obtaining Federal grants.

Maybe Blago got her the job. He used to be good at getting things for people.

I'm sure they are just recognizing the difficult economic times and using this opportunity to reassess every position before refilling...yeah right...snark!
