Working Stiff?

This one is for Katiebird. « The Confluence

"Many of us have followed Katiebird’s never ending quest to find out if Barack Obama ever really had a full time job. A lot of us have searched high and low, but so far nothing concrete. The only thing we could find was this resume for Barry online. Notice that in 1998 Obama was actually holding down two part-time jobs. One was as state senator, the other as a university “lecturer”. Actually that second one is kind of iffy. His resume states that he was a “visiting Law and Government Fellow (read: Free Money for Doing Nothing) then a Senior Lecturer”. So in 1998 he may have been only working one part-time job while collecting academic welfare..."

In all fairness, I must point out that, sometimes, working part-time in as a teacher can be more time-consuming and more difficult than working full-time. I've done both and I know there are no hard and fast rules, other than if you're working at the University level (not a big deal, btw), the hours are nearly always fewer and the pay much better.
