I’m not overly familiar with how TV networks handle contracts for their on-air personalities. I do wonder if they could borrow a page from the world of sports. Incentives and “not likely to be earned” bonuses are standard fare in those contracts. A ‘not likely to be earned’ bonus is any bonus paid on an incentive that has never been hit by that player before. The Patriots, for instance, could put a ‘not likely to be earned’ incentive in Tom Brady’s contract that pays him $125k if he throws 51 touchdown passes in a season. As Brady have never thrown more than 50, that makes it a ‘not likely to be earned’. The team can announce the deal with the ‘could be worth as much as ‘ and include the not likely to be earned.

Pelley is making $5M a year. A reasonable raise would seem to be in the $7M area given his current positive gains. However, I would add a ‘not likely to be earned’ escalator that takes his salary $12M if CBS hits second place in consecutive quarters and $13M if CBS hits first place.

I used to drive to an unknown destination the day before but now with GPS and Navigation in my phone, I find it unnecessary. DROID gets me there without issue.

Jesus gave another teaching about calling someone a fool during the sermon on the mount. 

Matthew Chapter 5 21 and 22

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.

These are 'red letter' words.

@The Old Maid  That's a great question. I'm actually going to write up my answer in a post as it would be too long for a comment.

"If you follow both Carly and me, you’ll see that tweet in your timeline. If you don’t follow both of us, you won’t.

But Carly will see it when she checks in at Twitter under the Interactions tab, because the tweet uses that @reply right off the top.

If I add a character — most people just use a period — before the tweet, then the tweet is fully public. Everyone who follows me will see my tweet in their timeline whether they follow Carly or not:"

I think that's what they mean by 'arcane'. The rules for what you see or don't see or what your followers see or don't see are not intuitive. I wouldn't be surprised if they went to a G+ type 'circle' paradigm.

I would respectfully disagree. 

"Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings." 1 Corinthians 9:19-23

Isn't having an Easter Egg hunt exactly emulating what Paul said he did?  To our culture, we become a little like our culture so as to win those in that culture (though we ourselves are not part of that culture, for we are not conformed to the pattern of this world, but are transformed by the renewing of our mind (Rom12:2)).
