Default Unwarranted contributor fees

Kalev Pehme, editor of Chess Life, gave a report at the 2004 USCF delegates'
meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where he said that he cut back on all kinds
of expenditures, including sending people to cover events, unwarranted
contributor fees, etc.
Yet, if one looks at the 2004-2005 proposed budget for the USCF, one sees that
what is budgeted for Chess Life contributor fees is the same as it was for
2003-2004: $75,000

What is budgeted for 2004-2005 is a decrease in CL subscriptions (by $9,000),
newsstand sales (by $10,000) and advertising and miscellaneous (by $60.000).
What is missing is the line item for the editor's salary. Is that considered
part of the "contributor fees"? Or is that buried in the $757,000 salaries and
wages?
It is interesting to note that the decrease in the 2004-2005 salaries and wages
is roughly equivalent to the $350,000 that ChessCafe will owe the USCF for
receiving the outsourcing contract.

They really aren't equivalent since one is expense and the other is income.

So the difference is $700K.

Yet, the powers that be expect us to believe that past losses were all the
result of bad management.
This is preposterous.
