    For a copy editor the NY Post is the pinnacle. Their ethically-challenged reporting aside, the Post has great headlines-cutlines, deck heads you name it. I wouldn't bother applying if you're a lightweight, I'm sure when it comes to copy editors they can and usually do get the best of the best.

    I would cut off an arm, a leg and lose virtually any other body part to someday work at the NYP.

    Just wanted to say it.

    I hear it doesn't pay nearly as much as needed to have a reasonable standard of living in NYC.

    I've heard the same thing. I've also heard some unflattering things about the SE.

    I'd also be willing to sell said body parts for spare change to purchase paper to burn for heat.

    Wouldn't it be hard to work missing those limbs?

    Twice I've worked with a one-armed guy. They got along better than fine. Both were crabby bastards, though.

    Work smarter, not harder.

    I wouldn't surrender anybody parts, but I'd LOVE to work there a week (I could never live in NY), just for the chance to write classics like "Headless body found in topless bar."

    Whoretastic is my favorite word. And I'm pretty sure I could use that in a hed at the NYP.

    Oh wait! Combining in another of my favorite parts of the NYP...
