    I guess if you're a spineless sack of an advertising whore who gives in to demands, instead of having integrity, you could work for this publisher:

    Hey, isn't that one of Rick Reilly's former papers!?

    P.S. I meant the Denver Post, not the Summit Daily News.

    In many small papers across the country, you could replace ski resort with hospital and see the same kind of influence
  5. I found the Vail PR flak's comments "disingenuine." :D

    Vail officials were forced to admit today that when they announced that 12 inches of snow fell yesterday, they actually meant they were about to listen to Informer when someone dropped the CD.

    How much does it pay?

    Probably as much as you make now. I don't know how much you make, but I can guess at the range. And you couldn't rent a shack for less than $1,000 a month in any city near the slopes.

    A lot of Colorado newspapers have been making news lately rather than just reporting it, I've noticed.

    Good column by Greene.
