“Equal pay for Alex Morgan” (June 12)? Isn't that setting the bar a little low?

Given the disparate success rates of the women's and men's soccer teams, Alex and her teammates should be paid much more than the men. Then multiply that pay differential by all the past years the women's team performance has exceeded the men's. Only then will we start to see what "equal pay" really looks like.
