Marx is now a bishop and he's still lashing capitalism - 03/10/06

A German Catholic bishop from the birthplace of his famous namesake, Karl
Marx, has hit out at the greed and excess of top management salaries at a
time of great economic duress for many. Bosses salaries and perks have gone
up by some 30 per cent at the same time as companies have been plunged into
bankruptcy jobs for workers cut. This has caused widespread anger and
resentment. Bishop Reinhard Marx, the Catholic bishop of Trier and
chairperson of the German Episcopal Commission for Society and Social
Matters, told the local newspaper, Trierischer Volksfreund, that he thought
salary hikes of this kind were "audacious". [="kühn"?]
