    My mother always said if I can't say anything nice...

    Blessed be the haunch that takes this job. If you don't like to smile and hate yourself...this would be the job for you.

    Ooops, guess I broke my mother's law. :)

    I like to hate myself and smile -- is that the same thing?

    Just curious as to why this is considered such a bad job?

    I'm going to guess that people will say "Gannett", but it appears to be a fairly solid job, depending on your situation.

    Know nothing about the job itself, but I will offer this: You ever been in Green Bay, Monday through Saturday, from October through March? Cutting some slack for football Sundays, there isn't much left but frozen tundra the rest of the time.

    Oh, wait, there are taverns.

    Speaking as someone who once lived there, it's a nice area in which to raise a family.

    If you're youngish and single, and your idea of fun ranges beyond dinner and a movie, forget it.

    Washington Ave. in downtown GB and College Ave. in Appleton aren't that bad.

    What if all you do in your spare time is play Guitar Hero?
