    Our pal in Lenox is at it again...pack your tent because that's what you'll have to live in:

    Bootstrap Journalism #101: Opportunity to hitch a ride on The Berkshire Beacon, Lenox, MA and establish a work ethic and portfolio while contributing to the production of an award-winning publication: Writing hard news & features, capturing sporting events, taking digital pictures to help frame the stories along with selling ad space and compete on special editions including a summer tourist Tab, Berkshire Sonata. Whether you are a seasoned journalist or retired, a journeyman, or just someone looking for a start, there is a spot for you at The Beacon. No sea shells, no life at the beach. Just an opportunity to put one's creativity and multitask efforts--including sales, marketing, writing, design, photography and self-enterprising initiatives--on the pages of The Berkshire Beacon and its web site http://www.berkshirebeacon.com/index_draft.shtml You will be paid a stipendium & commissions on sales; along with an editorial stipendium plus expenses as part of a cohesive small newspaper family whose goal is to help make this publication the Best New England Weekly as voted by New England Press Association (NEPA) www.nepa.org This is Bootstrap Journalism #101 at its best. See Small Newspapers: http://www.asne.org/kiosk/reports/97reports/smallnewspapers/contents.html It doesn't get any better than to see the formation of a dedicated staff dressed for success to share in The Berkshire Hills experience. See www.lenox.org Our goal is to produce a community TAB from our own resources that will be recognized and respected each week by our readers & advertisers. When you are ready to move on, your sales/editorial portfolio will help you secure your journalistic dream job along with a letter of recommendation from The Beacon's publisher/editor. We are the "Heart" of The Berkshires and thus the goal of our newspaper is: “Berkshire Hometown News First.” If you're up for the challenge and can't wait to see your byline in print, E-Mail your resume with heading marked BEACON to: george@berkshirebeacon.com; call 413-637-9822. -George C. Jordan III, ED & PUB

    The phrase "boots trappers" reminds me of something else.

    This guy is a major-league asshole, and I sent him an e-mail a few years ago to that effect.

    He's part of the reason schmoes are taking pay cuts and all working on the cheap.
