    Out of curiosity, how many people are on the MDJ's sports staff.

    You really know, don't you? You just want all of us who have been there to drag out those old war stories again for your entertainment.

    There are two sides to every story and then there is the truth. Is this a great place? No but by the same token, kids were put into positions that they weren't qualified for. The pay isn't great which is a major reason why there is so much turnover.

    Actually, the number one reason there is so much turnover is that the publisher is a psychotic idiot who pays like crap and treats employees like vermin. The job life expectancy of a sports editor there is measured in months. If the over-under on how long the SE lasts is a year, take the under.

    Oh, and did I mention the publisher's idea of what the paper is supposed to cover and how changes hourly?

    At one time, just about every current or former reporter I ran into in the Atlanta area either A) had their own MDJ story to tell or B) knew someone who did. I fit into the former category (though my six weeks in purgatory were spent at an MDJ affiliate), and let me say it's everything people make it out to be ... and 10 times more. Do yourself a favor and steer clear. This place has chewed up some pretty good folks and spit them out. If you are tempted to apply, just take a staple gun and fire it through your eyelids. The experience should approximate a day in that pee-pee soaked heck hole.

    The fact that the circulation is so pathetically low in a county of more than 600,000 people tells you just about all you need to know about Mr. Brumby's little toy.
