After complaints, Petraeus salary at City University of New York shrinks to $1

Earlier this year, City University of New York announced that David H. Petraeus, the former CIA director and commander of the allied forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, would be a visiting professor at the university's Macaulay Honors College. But, The New York Times reports, after some professors and politicians expressed outrage over the $200,000 salary Petraeus was to receive, Petraeus now says he will teach for just $1. CUNY appointed him in April to teach a seminar now called “Are We on the Threshold of the North American Decade.”
