    Might want to check again, mustang. I think Mercer is in Macon.

    Yeah I checked the website it said Macon and some other place in Georgia. Instead of putting Georgia, I wrote Atlanta. Interesting; I haven't even been drinking.

    There's not enough money in the world to make it worth living in Macon and working at Mercer. As an alum, trust me on this.

    I know a couple of gal hoops players there.

    And I still wouldn't take the job.

    Macon's only an hour or two from Atlanta, but it might as well be another universe.

    But you could listen to old stories about Macon's old hockey team: Macon Whoopee. Really.

    and you could also hear about how Otis Redding, Little Richard and the Allman Brothers got their start in Macon for the 10,382nd time.

    For all the bashing about Macon and Mercer going on here....

    Isn't a non-Tribune, non-Singleton, non-other f**king slashin newspaper corporation job worth giving high props. And for those who have been f**ked, give this or any of the jobs Moddy has been posting a hard look.

    Thanks Moddy for posting this.
