    It would seem there's little more to be said. There is one fulltime sports writer there now. And they've borrowed one reporter and one copy editor from the news side. So, if you go in, the cupboard isn't necessarily bare; it's just filled with a lot of crappy ingredients (the most bitter of all being the infamous EIC).

    I think we've all discussed what makes this job one of the worst in the country.

    How colorful -- though I can't disagree.

    I thought direct and to the point was the only way to go.

    Source says they're paying in the mid, maybe upper 20's for someone with good experience. Problem is, if you have good experience, you're probably already making that or more. M'ville does have a low cost of living, but, well, how many ways can you say a job sucks? 349. And we've hit on all but three.
