    From the Missouri Press Association Web site ... Rolla is on I-44, about 100 miles SW of St. Louis - that's all I got.

    The Rolla Daily News, a six-day daily, is seeking an energetic, hands-on sports editor who can continue our award-winning tradition.
    The Daily News is located in south central Missouri, within easy driving distance of St. Louis and Springfield. The ideal candidate will be personally productive in writing, photography and layout while understanding and embracing our need to cover the full range of sports from youth to adult recreational leagues. We cover it all. Resumes should be sent to Floyd Jernigan, publisher, via email at fjernigan@therolladailynews.com or to the above at the Rolla Daily News, P.O. Box 808, Rolla, Mo., 65402.

    Unless something has changed since I was younger, Rolla is something like 75 percent dudes. So guys, if you're going there to look for your soulmate, you might want to bring your A game -- you'll have lots of competition.

    I gotta agree with TP on this one, and that rarely happens.

    Is it a red flag if a publisher wants the resumes first before the editor?

    Rolla is a dump of a town. Nothing at all to do there.

    You can get your kicks on Route 66, however.

    that does seem just a touch odd, doesn't it?

    I-44 through Missouri has got to be among the top 10 worst stretches.
