    Only thing I know about Moscow is the women are sturdy.

    The Moscow Pullman Daily News has an immediate full-time opening for an energetic and well-rounded sports journalist.

The Daily News is an award-winning, community-driven six daily paper with a 6,500-circulation located in Moscow Idaho, home of the University of Idaho Vandals. Eight miles away are the Washington State University Cougs. The area offers many recreational and educational amenities. Interviews will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Salary is $23,650. We offer paid vacation, benefits, employee stock options and 401K. Send cover letter, resume and contact information for three references to Sandra Kelly, Sports Editor, Moscow Pullman Daily News, 409 S. Jackson St., Moscow, ID 83843 or skelly@dnews.com

    Not much in the pay department, but a chance to cover Idaho and maybe some WSU stuff would probably make this a good gig for a single person or someone just starting out.

    Which state would be better to reside in as far as state taxes and things of that nature are concerned?

    Do you really think that makes a difference for what the job pays?

    Nah, just trying to generate some discussion.
  6. Um, is the Pope Catholic? Of course it makes a difference. $23,000 in one state is not $23,000 in another. In one state, it's a low salary. In another, you live quite comfortably.

    If you're single, you can live in a pretty comfortable one-bedroom apartment in Pullman in the $400/month range. Not sure about the other side of the border.

    Washington has no state income tax. Then again at $23k, there won't be much income tax to pay. Cost of living is pretty reasonable for a college town. The bars in Idaho stay open later (or at least used to).

    I think your standards for living comfortably are a lot different than the rest of us. $23,000 is living paycheck to paycheck no matter how much you slice it. Some of us want more out of life than eating generic cereal for every meal, or don't want ramen for dinner every night.

    And don't give me the cost-of-living line. The difference between living in Pullman and Moscow is minuscule compared to living in Moscow and San Francisco.

    In Communist Idaho, taxes pay you!

    Either way, for $23,000 a year, you're eating Ramen. No doubt about it.
  12. No truth about it. I've never once eaten Ramen. $23,000 is not paycheck to paycheck here. It's anything but.
