This is the second in a series of five articles, covering the top five highest paid CEOs in the US. Number two in the list is Richard Kinder, CEO of Kinder Morgan  (NYSE: KMI ) , who made $1.1 billion (and again, as with the number one spot Facebook, that's not a spelling mistake, I did mean billion) in fiscal 2012, the latest year for which figures are available.

And pay is not the only issue at Kinder Morgan; in fact, it's not really an issue at all.
