    You are given the choice by your editors to switch to any writing job in the newsroom.

    They have said resources will not be a problem and you can write unfettered.

    What would you switch to and why?

    I think it would be interesting to cover health or medical issues, operations, new surgical techniques, do profiles of patients and spotlight caregivers who have made a difference.

    I'd want a camera, a notebook, and my next assignment in whatever city they send me to.

    I'd jump yesterday if I had that chance. I think most of us would.

    I'd take the outdoors editor job, tweak a little from huntin' and fishin' to hiking, camping and outdoor/olympic sports like running, cycling, triathlon, etc.

    Movie reviews. Or video game reviews. Very little stress, I'd imagine.

    I'd also love to tour the state I'm in (whichever that might be) and do a weekly What-to-do active sports feature on one county per week. Focus on the bike trials, the river runs, the campgrounds, the ski runs, the triathlons, etc. And actually DO the activities I profile.

    Musc/movies, but then everybody wants that job.

    If you did get the choice, you be wise to choose something local, something the paper can't do without, something with a heavy web presence.

    In other words, a job that may still exist in 4-5 years.
