    Ask questions in a Canadian accent so that the players will better understand you.

    1-10. Don't show up.
    Go back to school. Find an honest profession that will compensate you fairly. Find a growth industry. Oil. Telecommunications. Government. Any will do. When the editor calls, simply say: "I appreciate your confidence in me, but at some point in the future I would like to be able to feed myself and my children. I just can't see myself living in Horseshit Horn, forever."

    Wow. Bitter much?

    Not bitter. I've been able to make a go at it. And a real good living.
    I just see the direction this ship is sailing. I've seen too many friends/colleagues "voluntarily" and "involuntarily separated" in the past 10 years.
    It's called "perspective, " not "bitter."

    Sadly, it has become a shitty business.

    Wasn't always that way, but it is now. I'd strongly discourage anybody I cared about from getting into it.

    (Is this where I need all the disclaimers? I work for a major paper, and I have a terrific situaton by today's standards, but it is the most ineptly run business I know. The leaders of this industry make Rich Kotite look like Bill Walsh.)

    I'm still trying to figure out how I can get a gig covering virgins.

    I'd rather uncover them, but that's just me.

    So the original poster never reported back? Someone must have pantsed him.

    I think he may have stood on the logo. Think they'll ever find the body?

    maybe the person hasn't reported back because there were multiple captains.
