    They will go cheap, as in low to mid 30's which you can't live on in South Florida, and young. Plus check back in about three months since this one seems to pop up frequently,.

    I find this extremely hard to believe. They paid me significantly more than that almost 20 years ago.

    Low to mid-30s was a South Florida salary when Reagan was president.

    Double it, and you're in the ballpark.

    I heard the person who got it was a cut above the rest. ... But that he or she may also have stabbed someone in the back to get it.
