    Rich Connor is a first class scumbag. This story does not surprise me. Those at the Star-Telegram when he was publisher is well aware of his "track record."

    Wow. Someone sure hates capitalism here. If he hadn't gotten that $500,000, some other chain would have snatched him away.

    Yeah, other businesses would just say that $500,000 is his bonus.

    The question should be "why isn't this guy in jail for embezzlement?"
