    It's a bit of a joke that the Ice Cream News has a sports co-editor for a job that pays peanuts.

    My guess is a two person sports department in which both people are equals and both are co-editors.

    My guess is the bean counters call it "co-sports editor" to make it a salaried position and absolve the company from paying overtime to either person.

    And that may not even be legal, although the law is a jumble. I think federal law requires someone like that to be supervising two people.
