    Maybe this will be moved since it isn't a sports opening, but how can this ad say all of this with a straight face while it continues to deal with the obvious issues. :-\

    Ask for a guaranteed, up front $100,000 ... and it might be worth your time.
    Once, the SBNP was an outstanding newspaper with a great sports staff.
    John Nadel of the AP in Los Angeles worked there, along with several other very talented people.
    You won't make it there for anything less than $45K. Housing is beyond belief.
    Handle with care.

    just a small nit to pick, since we have to do it all the time with one of our columnists

    It's "in addition to myriad other problems" not "the myriad of"

    30 miles yesterday, actually. It's raining today, so I'll just do an afternoon swim of 1,000 meters at the pool.

    I've got to wonder, though. If you're just a worker bee trying to cut his/her teeth and exist in the background without getting too involved with the ugliness in the rest of the newsroom, how tough would it be to take a job at this paper for a year or two to get experience and then try to move on?

    I would rather clean the booth at an adult book store than work at that place.

    For $45K you're still living in Oxnard. In the bad part.

    I heard they're down to two city-side reporters. There was a time (actually, up until about a year ago) when I'd have given anything to work there. Now, not so much.

    Maybe if Jerry Roberts wins his suit and wins the paper back it might be a cool place to work, but that crap they pulled with the computer porn was disgusting. Just think, with that job, you too could be bullied into cobbling together a b.s. story defaming someone, but at least you wouldn't have to put your byline on it. That paper is the worst piece of crap since the SF Chron and Examiner went on strike and put out a scab rag for a few weeks with fake bylines.
