    Amen. I've gone that route twice and have not regretted it. You certainly start the job with a much better attitude.

    i didn't say 10 percent of what.

    but seriously, i started as a 1-man sports dept. making roughly $23k a year 5 years ago and make $42k a year (better effing be $48k before the summer's over) now as managing editor for the same small community daily east of dallas. may not be rich but i live more than comfortably for the area. incidentally, my sports editor makes right at $26k a year and he's due for a 10 percent raise before the summer is over. that being said, the size paper we are, you do reach a ceiling and need to move on to make better money eventually.
