Calling all journalists

I found the following link thanks to PNH's Sidelights over on Making Light. It will warm kaffyr's heart and several of debgeisler's students will likely get a kick out of it, too:

The best journalism job want ad ever.

Forbes sez it's real, albeit in Dan Bigman's "Important if True" blog. Be sure to read the comment about Hunter S. Thompson's 1958 letter to the Vancouver Sun, too. It's a classic.

Unsurprisingly, the post is making the rounds. I found a couple more links back to A Few Tasteful Snaps, journalist Glen McGregor's personal blog. I liked the comments there as well.

But it's in Florida, the only part of the globe that they never terraformed for human use ....

That ad is a gem, though. A brilliant little pear-cut gem.

Surely the Sarasota Herald-Tribune needs a Chicago office....

Well, I think it does! Either that, or that they need to hire to you to put together a research/reporting bureau (hiring whomever you want as its manager so you can remain focused on the journalism). The job would course come with an adequate travel budget for you and other bureau staff as needed.

Shared this with my boss. She loves this sort of thing and your interesting side-story links make this a better entry to point to than just the article itself.
