    I only read the first graf, but...

    1. I wouldn't work for a place that couldn't spell its own company right in a job ad.
    2. 10 million characters? Really? Who cares about a number like that?
    3. Maybe it wouldn't be 10 million without random misplaced semicolons.

    PA is carried on the Yahoo wire. I only know this because it gets in the damn way of the AP stories. Such a hassle.

    Has anyone here actually applied for one of the PA gigs and if so did you get a response from anyone?
  9. Ah Cheshire, CT. Be ready to pay outrageous rent. You might want to get a second job if you land this one.
