This Gives Me A Special Feeling

I'm not sure I should be reading the news anymore, but a Superintendent of a school district, a school district which just happens to be closing schools and firing people because they can't pay the bills, will get to retire, start collecting his pension, and then get rehired (the very next day!) at his old salary while at the same time still collect his pension because, you know, he's retired. His salary is $130,000 plus perks. His pension is around $105,000. He will be collecting $265,000 in total per year. Which for some reason, reminds me of this...

Oh, and um, the school district will also give him $11,238 so he can buy his own health-insurance. Have a nice day.
