    Good sports market, and the section is OK (tweener size, to some degree). Housing is about as inexpensive as it gets in metro U.S. This position is not one unfamiliar to me, and it would be a fire drill each night. Pack the M&M's and brace yourself for the Gannett shrapnel.

    Is it just me, or have there been a ton of ASE openings lately?

    Met Jim in Orlando -- used to date a Schreiner chick! -- and he had a lot of good to say about the paper and the direction it's heading. Heard good things about him from guys who worked for/with him. Seemed like he'd be a good guy to work for.
