Highly connected, highly paid official's job questioned

Sean P. Murphy and Connie Paige of The Boston Globe tracked the activities of Massachusetts' director of the Department of Labor, Angelo R. Buonopane, finding that his "work days average two hours and 51 minutes, according to Globe reporters who observed him over a series of days during February and March. On many days he does not come in at all." Buonopane, who earns $108,000 a year, "has no obvious duties. ... Last week, a spokesman for Secretary of Economic Development Ranch C. Kimball, to whom Buonopane reports, could not provide a description of Buonopane's duties."
