    Run far. Run fast. Don't look over your shoulder or you'll be turned into a pillar of salt.

    An apartment in Isla Vista ... the Pacific Ocean at your toes ... tempting.

    Working for Wendy McCaw .... not so tempting.

    I used to think that this would be the perfect place to spend the last 10 or 15 years of my career. Now I wouldn't touch that job. In addition, there's a job action there, so you have the possibility of being labeled a scab.

    Nope, Santa Barbara's beautiful, but it's not worth working for Beezelbub herself.

    Veterans of the DTI 4 to 5 switch at my current paper speak of it the way one speaks of a traumatic childhood experience.

    Can I ask a dumb question. If you use Quark, how tough is it to pick up InDesign?

    At least the posting doesn't call for applicants to be "passionate."

    Passionate journalists tend to give a shit about how they're treated. Wendy wants to avoid all that.
