    fargo is not a fun town.

    i haven't seen a hard copy of the forum in at least five years but being voted in the top 10 in north dakota isn't saying much. your legit competition for awards - as far as major in-state newspapers - is a slim list.
  8. Leo1,

    They were an APSE top 10. That's a national award, not a state award.
  9. Good paper, good people. Fargo isn't a bad town, but it's a long way from everywhere.

    100 degrees in the summer and -30 in the winter. If you can handle those extremes, go for it, because this is a good job.

    What with global warming and all, Jimmy Buffett might end up moving his cafe to Fargo.
