    Apologize to whoever I pissed off.

    I was simply trying to help my old staff, because I know this particular paper takes far too long to make a decision. And, when they had a copy editor opening within the past three months, complaints within the office were that they couldn't find anyone qualified. Also, I don't think my position was ever posted online when I initially applied.

    Just trying to help someone that would like the opportunity and help out the current staff.

    As for my standing and where I write. It's not a big deal. Anyone can believe whatever they'd like.

    I can back up Matt on this one. It has happened, and recently.

    You've pissed off no one. It's a nobody loser who commented negatively about it.

    Believe this. There are fewer Midwest rust belt towns more depressing than Steubenville.

    It's a bad paper and you'll make peanuts, i.e. it's Ogden, but if you're an Ohio/W.Va/Pa native, it wouldn't be a terrible first job. Cheap cost of living, an hour from Pittsburgh, and very good high school football and baseball. Also, tons of casinos around there and soon enough, fracking!

    Forgot to add, congrats on the new job. It proves that you can make something out of any opportunity.

    Talked to my former cohort yesterday, they still have yet to interview anyone. I guess my preemptive attempt to help out didn't work.
