  2. They are pretty desperate to fill this position. I didn't apply for it and am a writer that has some pages posted on newspagedesigner. And they have e-mailed me on three separate occasions asking if I'm interested in this job.
    My point is, if you want this job it should be pretty easy to get.

    The drawback is moving to Iowa but that town is pretty cool.
