    If you're a good newspaper copy editor with any online experience, I can't imagine why you wouldn't consider this job (barring location issues). They're devaluing us by the day at newspapers, and online sites don't seem to be hiring us by the droves, either. If I hadn't just taken a pretty good job in the last six months, I'd be all over this one.

    Do they have folks working in New York, or is the entire operation based out of Fort Lauderdale?

    This is Fort Lauderdale based, and I'm fairly certain there's no wiggle room on that. And nobody involved in the editorial production of the website is based in N.Y.

    Boo! (Kidding, of course) Thanks for the insight.
