    Odd education/experience requirements. I know a ton of people with 1-3 years of experience (post-school) who are a hell of a lot better than folks with a master's.

    It's New England, dude. Up there they value education over almost anything else.

    Whatever that means.

    Pittsfield is your typical struggling small post-industrial city. I think GE is totally out of the town now. I find charm in those places, though, and you're also around some scenic territory (Berkshires, near Tanglewood, etc.).

    Not sure who just left as SE, but they've had some good staffers over the years. The smaller North Adams daily was folded into the Eagle a couple years ago.

    Albany is an hour or so, probably can do Boston in 2.5, New York is somewhere north of 3 hours.
