The state of California has agreed to pay Jaycee Dugard $20 million to compensate for its massive negligence. The system failed to intervene in her 18-year captivity at the hands of convicted sex offender Philip Garrido. [NYT]

18yrs * 365 = 6570 days.
$20M / 6570 = $3,044.14/day
In my estimate, not nearly enough. But if this money helps bring even a small measure of comfort or closure for Ms. Duggard, it's worth every cent.
