    even by newspaper standards, the Hartman's have a uniquely retarded approach to the business.

    This job was just filled in August. Anyone know what happened?

    Again? This is like three (maybe four) times in the past three years.
  7. I take a sort of glee in the fact that a paper that couldn't take time to call me back — and, come on, it's not even a daily — has such turnover. Maybe this makes me a petty asshole, but whatever.

    Go look up a Terry Schaub on twitter. Not exactly a typical publisher.

    You're young, keep this attitude and at least you'll have glee your entire life.
  10. I know you're right. Sometimes — not always, I swear! — I get too petty and bitter for my own good. It just sucks when you see a good coverage area, want to be there for a while and have decent plans for it, and never get an e-mail back, while they hire someone who doesn't even last a year.

    That's not under my control, though, and I need to let things go.

    You're certainly not the first person to have those feelings and brave of you to admit it publicly. I suspect coaches and people in other professions feel much the same at times.
