"Must have reliable transportation for visiting clients regularly."

A skateboard is best. Visiting clients means going door to door begging for subscriptions.

Charlotte observer is trying to force employees to pay back a loan they gave out to employees and are enforcing a penatly for repayment because they made a tax error when giving out the loan. don't sign the paper you got see the newsroom staff, we have a tax attrny who can help. you dont have to pay back the penalty just the amount you actually recieved.

Gosh I really want a job at a company like this one! Where do I apply?
I am about to lose my job as a paid healthcare supporter attending Town Halls and holding up Obama signs. This sounds like just the place I would like to work.
