Bob, I'm *very* interested in this topic also. It would be helpful to get some sense of what the market bears out there. Maybe a poll could be set up where people could indicate the ranges into which their monthly charges fit. It does seem that this isn't an easy topic to approach, though whether this is because people are concerned about competition, are reluctant to share what lucrative contracts they've managed, or simply don't have many paying gigs isn't clear. From my fairly small sample space, either $5K/mo is high or I'm a chump.
