    Wish I had enough experience to apply for this.

    D.C. is a neat place to live, even though it's pricey. Definitely need a roommate, especially on Times salary. Also puts you within an easy train ride of Baltimore. And both cities have OK Triple-A teams.

    I agree that DC and the metro area is a great/neat place to live, and yes it can be a bit pricey, depending on where and how you live.

    But perhaps you'll be pleasantly surprised to know that not all of our folks are shacking up with roomates. Some do, some are married, some simply live by themselves. It can be done, believe it or not.

    True, John. I'm sure the vets make an OK living. I more was referring more to the D.C. newbies, who likely are on the bottom end of the paper's salary scale (especially if they don't have a lot of experience).

    So, what WOULD a job like this pay?

    $34,500 a year, with no travel expenses to collect since you will be a paginator/desker

    Howdy folks -- just stopping by to give this one more bump.

    Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    And hey, the Nats are at least Quadruple-A . . . .

    That's sickening. I make that now at a 35,000 circulation newspaper and I don't have a title. This business is a joke, especially in D.C. Whoever said they can live on their own in D.C. making that kind of money is sharing a cardboard box near the Capitol.

    You'd have to sell crack to Marion Barry to live in D.C. for that kind of money.

    $34,000??? You're joking, right?
