  1. Just a thought: does this place have great vision insurance? You'll need it after lengthy exposure to those bright yellow unis.

    Beautiful city. Nice campus. I'm sure someone will disagree, so feel free to chime in. Paper's pretty good for a city that size and Pitt's an hour away in good weather. Discuss. :)

    "Small, yet extremely productive Sports Department" = extremely overworked

    Very good sports section for its size, but I'm not sure if the DP's writers ever get a day off. Obviously, the same applies to the WVU football beat.

    Is the DP still family-owned? It used to be owned by John Raess, if I'm recalling and spelling correctly ....

    I wonder what happened to Stephanie. She was very, very good.

    I would apply for this job if I thought I had a snowball's chance in hell of landing it.

    Dracula: you should apply regardless. They may see something they can work with, even if you don't have the exact specifications from the ad in your job history. What's the worse they can say? No.
  9. The D-P is still a family-owned (Raese) paper. And a good one. They do an OUTSTANDING job in all facets of coverage for that area.
    They do work hard. Several of their beat writers have used the DP as a stepping stone to other papers.

    Is that the equivalent to Dwight Schrute?

    I've never been to Morgantown, but I hear it's not as bad as the coonskin cap might indicate.

    If you don't think you could get a job, then you shouldn't get it. Plenty of people out there who think they could land it.
