    If Walt is in charge of the search, I've got to think this is a better job than it was when I applied for it in 2006. I was good enough to work for USA TODAY, but not good enough for the CDT according to the SE in those days. Good luck to those who apply. Walt was more than helpful when I was looking for some background info when I applied 5 years ago.

    To second someone else's sentiment, Walt Moody's a good guy who is easy to work with.

    This paper wouldn't know a good sports writer if they were staring them in the face.
