Sandy, perhaps you aren't factoring in course releases and subsidies paid to editorial offices? I would be surprised if Penn State weren't providing support in some manner - I believe that many university presses actually do so. University of California Press, for example, provides a broad range of editorial support in a variety of forms for the journals we publish including editor's salaries, stipends, course releases and office support. This type of support from publishers has become increasingly important over the past decade as institutional support for editorial offices has diminished.

Frankly, Sandy, I don't think I would have put that into print. I don't know your journals program, but if something has economic value and I sat at, say, Blackwell or Sage (not to mention MIT or Chicago), I would take your statement as an opportunity to go poaching.
