    My wife just got a job offer in Lexington, and don't see any openings there. Anyone know anything about this weekly? What kind of starting pay are we looking at? I've had 10 years at a daily, anyone know what a weekly like this might pay?

    From the Behind the Laughter episode, one of the best episodes.

    Found this tidbit on wikipedia:

    "Northern Kentucky"

    The episode refers to the long-running joke of Springfield's unknown and unidentifiable location. The original version of Forbes' line at the end, "The future looks brighter than ever for this Northern Kentucky family," was changed multiple times.[2] Scully said the writers did not want to "pin it down for the fans," and with knowledge that the episode would rerun twice, had Forbes record several alternate locations, which were indeed seen on Fox reruns.[2] Each of the alternate locations, including the unused "small island of Lanai," can be found as an easter egg on the eleventh season DVD set.
