How Much?


There are plenty of fat cats running around in this sport,
some fatter than others, but is there anyone fatter than this? Say what
you want about and him, and we have, he puts his money where his outh
is. The sport could use a few more players like this.

Oracle Corp. founder Larry Ellison, a longtime fixture on the list
of the world’s richest people, is now ensconced atop The Associated
Press’ rankings of the top-paid chief executives in the United States.
Never shy about flaunting his estimated $25 billion fortune, Ellison
established himself as the best-paid CEO among major U.S. companies
by persuading Oracle to award him a fiscal 2008 pay package
valued at $84.6 million
under the AP’s calculations.
