    Interned at this paper in the mid 1980s. Interesting newspaper history there. I was there for the 10-year(?) anniversary of famous strike. Paper's dumpster was lit on fire. Competition was fierce. Other guys wouldn't even talk to you. And God forgive you if you got beat on a story on your beat. You got an ass chewing like nowhere I've been since. Made me hustle.
    Great sports town
    Some great food in this town, too. Superb pizza on every corner.
