    Lee Enterprises ... ugh

    If I was a sports editor at a small town Lee paper in Iowa, I'd be looking over both shoulders when I walked out the front door every morning.

    From looking at their website, they only have 4 papers in Iowa: The QC Times and Courier in Waterloo/Cedar Falls probably don't qualify as "small town", and there's Sioux City and Mason City.

    Really? It doesn't even say the name of the paper or where it is? You can work in some nice areas in Iowa or you could end up in BFE. It'd kinda be nice to know.

    They also have (I think) Muscatine. This might be Mason City or Muscatine; Sioux City's a decent-sized paper (by Iowa standards).

    They need a sports editor who won't drive them crazy.

    A weekly paper?
    For what they'll pay, you'll probably have an interstate running through your front yard. You'll think you've got it good, though.

    The ad on this page looks like it says "Tough Udder." Lots of those in Iowa.
