This chart is from a Wall Street Journal story about how much money Fortune 300 companies spent to keep their CEOs safe. There's quite a swing here. In one hand you've got companies like Valero Energy, which forked over a mere $239 for monitoring fees for CEO William Klesse's home security system. At the other extreme is Limited Inc., which spent $1.25 million to protect CEO Leslie Wexner. This total reportedly includes security for Wexner's 22,371-square-foot home on a 300-acre estate and "other homes and a yacht." It also includes use of a corporate jet, which the company requires.
