Bennett doesn't need a 'golden parachute'--he needs a psychiatrist to help him with his ego problems and money-lust at the age of 71 no less. You really have to wonder what's wrong with a guy who wants to be called "Dr" even though he isn't a medical doctor. And demands that a building be named after him and then denies it. And falsely claims to be DAN's founder. And fills DAN's news page with self-serving announcements about mostly silly awards. And pilfers tax-free donations to pay for his lavish "king of scuba" lifestyle. And worst of all, attempts to rip off a million dollars in DAN donations like some kind of corporate thug. I renominate Bennett for Pompous Asshole of the Year.
