    Yeah, but there's that pre-employment drug testing. I guess that means they're looking for a candidate from outside the region.

    So there are no journalists in the region who don't use drugs?

    Um, just making a joke about one of the sleaziest, most drug-ridden towns in the country. Never mind.

    The new sports editor has held one previous full-time journalism job: nine months at the SE at the Roswell Daily Record.
