    I'm with ya there, given that I'm a Tulsa native, my dad sends me this "new" posting every few weeks.

    Strange to me. Tulsa's a nice place and the paper plays much bigger than it is. One of the better regional papers around, in my opinion.

    Wish I had known this was posted already. I have to deal with these questions every time an opening goes up.

    Basically, almost every opening we've had in the last few years has been because of someone either getting promoted or leaving the newspaper business for personal reasons. This opening came because one of our editors, Brandi Ball, has taken a job as a writer on our Scene desk. Currently, we have nine full-time employees on the desk; eight of them have been there long term (including Brandi, who was a part-timer and worked up to full-time). If someone wants a run-down of all the jobs and why the openings came about, I'd be glad to fill you in.

    If anyone has any questions, let me know. I'll be happy to answer, either thought PMs or just on here if you think everyone will be interested.

    A lot of guys have been with the World since I wad in middle school, some longer.

    Said it before, I'll say it again. Great folks at this paper. If I were a desk man, I'd be all over this (might be anyway).

    Yep, Strain's still in charge. James and Patrick Prince are assistants. Tremendous group, easy to work with.

    Plus, you'll get to edit my copy (freelance) on occasion. Though, I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

    Thanks for the endorsement, Eric.

    Like Mr. Bolin, one of our best correspondents, said, Strain's still in charge. He's great to work with. I've learned a ton from him in my five years here. He does a good balance of managing things without micromanaging. And he's not a slave driver. I really think if you're willing to learn from him, there's a lot to learn.
