Music Monday: RIAA CEO earns $3 million salary for suing evil downloaders

In case you're wondering why the RIAA has to go around suing grandmothers for downloading music, it may have something to do with the annual $3 million-plus the record industry trade group pays its CEO.

In addition to big chief Cary Sherman's multimillionaire lifestyle, the RIAA supported its staff of executives, lobbyists and minions in 2009 with a reported $16.2 million in "salaries, other compensation, and employee benefits."

Thank goodness the RIAA is tax-exempt! That way, none of these precious funds are diverted toward our government's wasteful expenditures on U.S. highway safety, disaster recovery and other frivolities.

So pay up, grandma, it's the right thing to do!
