    Several possibilities:

    1) Never filled. Given JRC's Code Blue financial condition, by far the most likely. They have to get permission from the head honchos to buy a roll of toilet paper (on the rare occasions they buy rolls of toilet paper).

    2) Filled, and new hire has already been fired/laid off (especially after moving cross country/out of state to accept the position; frequently only days before the 90-day probation period is over). Standard operating procedure for JRC.

    3) Filled, and new hire has already had enough of their bullshit and quit in rage/horror/disgust.

    None of the above. This is a former shop of mine, so I know many people there, and this spot was filled months ago. It was a heck of a job getting somebody in there quickly amid the JRC bloodbath.

    Word from the sports editor is that this job was filled months ago. I'm locking this thread.
