    This has been posted fairly recently, like in the last six-nine months. I remembered distinctly the shit pay and the thrill-inducing opening line of Calling all sports fans! Do you love watching a good sports game? Somehow, I don't imagine this is the type of place that breeds longterm loyalty. As in, get in and gtfo.

    Probably going to be a long line for you to wait in. Just a feeling.

    If you had a dick, I'd feel the same way.

    Seriously, who uses Pagemaker anymore other than high school yearbooks (if they even use it)? $15K? That's ridiculous.

    Rule No. 1. Beware of any ad that starts out like this: Calling all sports fans! Do you love watching a good sports game?

    One university that claims to have a quality communication department. Yeah ... they're giving their students a big head start in this profession ...

    I had to zoom out three times to find a town I had heard of. And I not only live in a neighboring state, I'm a Weather Channel junkie so I know a whole lot of towns.
