    Just saying it's not a contract or hourly wage (in other words, stability). And yes, fully functional desk and chair are included.

    You don't know what you got until you ain't got it no more.

    You can tell how bad a paper is doing by checking out the chairs in the newsroom. If most of them are old and broken down, money is really, really tight. Or management doesn't care anymore.

    Or both.

    Sheesh, if it'd that bad and that important, you could, ya know, buy your own.

    I had a colleague once who swapped chairs with a desk in adverstising one night and I tried to tell him such might not be the best idea. Oh, well.

    Meanwhile ....... back to the job posting at hand. Anyone ever heard of this publication?
