    How safe would this job be?
    With all the money problems the publisher is having would whomever gets this job be one of the first to go due to being low man on the totem pole in terms of seniority?

    I find that instead of low totem poll kind of thing, in non-union shops its usually the highest paid non-manager who gets the axe first. Either a columnist, or if that is too high profile, that veteran college writer or GA features reporter. Then they go for the copy editors.

    If you are looking for an excellent line or two on your resume, take this job. McLoone is as good as it gets in this business. A wonderful guy. Worried about layoffs? He'll look out for you (and all his people). If the paper ever folds, which is unlikely, saying you're a member of that desk will help you land anywhere. Golden opportunity in an excellent city and working under a prince.

    Why do you think it is unlikely that the paper will fold?

    Couldn't really say it better about Pat myself.

    PHINJ -- why do you think it is likely that the paper will fold? The owners came in last year with a five-year commitment. I can't imagine there are that many places in this business that are so incredibly more stable than that, unfortunately.

    You have a point there.

    think they'd hire you just so they could fire you?
