    Actually, it's not horrible in the off-season. I've seen condos down there for less than $100K, which for the area is not shabby. The main issue might be night life between Labor Day and Memorial Day. It can be dead down there in February.

    And your salary will be cheap too, about $20,000. And that's not in blue print, so take it at its worth.

    Uh, no. Last time they had an opening (around Nov. 2009), salary started at $35,000.

    I was going to say, with its circulation, you'd think the salary would be higher than low 20s.

    Great folks to work with up there. It's been a few years since I interned there, so I'm sure there are some new faces, but I learned a lot from Bill and the whole group that summer.
