    i think the CT papers suck the biggest of donkey balls in that chain.

    for any idiot that's thinking about applying for this one, ask ahead of time how much youth sports -- percentage-wise -- are involved in this gig ... more than you think.

    Unless you think 100 percent.

    Then you might be right. Might be. They might be up to 110% local now.


    If it wasn't 6 am I'd rewrite that ad. But it is so I'm not.

    It's late.

    Do not ever, ever, ever, apply for or accept any job at any Journal Register Company newspaper.

    It doesn't matter how badly you think you need or want a job, you don't need this one.

    Why the hell does a 9K daily have an Executive Sports Editor?

    It's JRC. Sports, especially local sports, are the franchise.
