    In all seriousness, this is a good starting gig. The sports editor is a great guy. Young and dedicated to the craft. I've worked with him and can vouch for his professionalism.

    My only knowledge of this place comes from an an AJR story on something from nearly 20 years ago, when the publisher talked about reporter jobs and said they paid $7.50 an hour. A couple of reporters quietly told the AJR guy they made less. The publisher, when caught, made some weak excuse about job duties.

    It's funny what you can remember. ...
