From JournalismJobs.com:

Quote:
The Juneau Empire, Alaska‚s capital daily, is seeking someone to head its one-person sports department.


I got a big laugh out of this introductory paragraph, although the JournalismJobs.com ad does clarify that the sports editor does have subordinates, and some interesting duties related to them:

Quote:
The job also requires someone who enjoys coaching and nuturing freelance reporters.


It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

Juneau is a waterfront town of 30,000 people in Southeast Alaska. Surrounded by the country‚s largest national forest, it is a great place for outdoors lovers, with opportunities for hiking, salmon and halibut fishing, skiing, snowboarding and kayaking in town.


Translation: Must get pretty cold there in Alaska sometimes.

The perfect candidate will come in with a plan on how to organize and cover one high school ˜ with a second on the way ˜ .... We want someone who is hardworking, creative and knows how to go beyond the 12-inch gamer.

*** I have plenty of ideas for organizing a high school, "but that's probably not what they meant." ***
