    you think this gig pays near the 50K range?
  3. No, it's way more than that
  4. In all seriousness, does the blue represent sarcasm? Because it not, you're out of your mind.

    FWIW, got one of the snidest rejection letters in the history of the medium from this individual, one dripping with condescending vigor about how they have so few openings and how I'd be better off applying to other papers because the CC Times is so selective on who it considers for it's rare openings. ::)

    Totally unnecessary from a class standpoint, not to mention this was a 40,000-circ paper -- not the NY Times.

    And this was 1988.

    Just my .02.

    My brother once owned a restaurant there. He is now just across the canal in Plymouth. It is extremely expensive to live there. Population swells during the summer. Hard to get around at times. But beautiful.

    I see nobody's ever accused you of being a slow learner, Slappy. You process information rather well. ;)
