Petraeus to take $1 salary at CUNY

NEW YORK (AP) -

Former CIA director David Petraeus is taking a big salary cut for his visiting professorship at the City University of New York after being criticized for how much he was getting paid.

The New York Times reported Petraeus will teach his seminar at Macaulay Honors College in the next academic year for $1, down quite a bit from the $200,000 that Gawker.com first reported he was getting.

The high salary for someone teaching one class spurred outrage in a system in which the average full-time faculty member salary is just under $90,000.

Petraeus' attorney said he proposed the change because he wanted to keep focus on the students and the teaching, not the money.

Petraeus was an Iraq and Afghanistan war hero but left the CIA in scandal after an affair with his biographer.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
