Thought you might be interested in seeing some of this data visually. I played with it on a site called Many Eyes and posted a brief description at the following post: Data Visualization: Top 25 MLS Salaries. I think this would be really cool to do with some of the more complex data sets you have on your site if you are interested. Either way - thanks for the work you do - I enjoy your site.
