    Yup, and this job is actually a 2-for-1 -- two jobs for one person.

    I'm assuming they'll laugh their asses off at you if you put down for overtime pay.

    Ridiculous. But it's Paxton, so no surprise.

    This isn't the paper that we won the 25 awards in one year with. Not after being further Paxtonized.

    That said, there are wonderful people there. And it's a job. PM me for details.

    Sanford isn't a bad place, and the Triangle isn't too far away.

    But heed the warnings about Paxton. Not pretty.

    UNCgrad, I hate that your old paper has gone this route. You did a superb job there. We crossed paths a number of times.
