    We're now the second-worst! All reigns have to end some time. :(


    The new worst job in America is fitting, since it was featured at the end of one of the worst television finales in America:

    My great-great grandfather, a lumber tycoon, died in 1891 with a fortune worth over $3,000,000.

    Unfortunately, I never saw a dime of it. I went into NEWSPAPERS!! :-X :-X

    You should go back to that forest and claim rights to the trees. The Bundy Militia will be there backing you.

    Funny, a lot of value of his estate was thousands of acres of forest land, much of it now part of national forests.

    I better just hope the Ojibwe and Chippewa Indians aren't there to meet me with guns blazing.

    If it's in da U.P., the only people you'll see will be hunters poaching deer and pot heads growing marijuana on your great-great-grandpa's land. ;)

    Yeah, a lot of it is up there. I want my countree back!!!

    I'd be perfectly willing to set up a sharecropping arrangement for the dope growers. ;) ;)

    I figured journalism would be somewhere between the guy who cleans up roadkill, the guy who empties port-a-potties, fluffer and assistant crack whore.

    My great-great-great grandfather left Quebec in the late 1800s to cut trees in the UP. Maybe he worked for your dad, Starman. I still have UP relatives who work as lumberjacks. And they're OK.

    I want to know where garbage collectors make $22K. They make at least 3X that in every city I've ever lived in. Maybe they're talking about ones who don't work for the city.

    Fire fighter is a great job if you do it in a small city. My wife's uncle has been retired since his early 50s and will pull in $60K a year until he dies. My neighbor just retired at 52 and is in a similar situation. The ones in big cities? That's a brutal job.
