    People who drive backhoes into a wall of sandbags in order to trap their spouses on the other side of a flooded river need not apply.

    Can I still get the job if I don't support Whig Party policies?

    I can vouch for the paper. Great staff, great prep coverage.
  6. Ditto. Quincy is a great high school sports town. But it is in the middle of nowhere.

    Eschew the Whigs at your own peril. The Whig party will rule the 'teens ... the eighteen 'teens, that is.

    Fuck that. And I'm tired of people blaming James Polk for the failures of Zachary Taylor and Millard Fillmore. So what if Polk got a blow job from a chambermaid?

    Quincy is actually not a bad little town. It's right on the river, and there's plenty of character to the city. There also happen to be a bevy of neighborhood watering holes, which I am a big fan of. QND, the catholic high school there, has an O-lineman going D-I, so there is some talent in this neck of the woods. As for women, er, I didn't see much to look at.
