    We all want to go on welfare. Welfare pays better than that. The new welfare state is what is happening.

    There are still hearty souls that wouldn't consider welfare and enjoy hard work.

    xppc~ What are you talking about welfare for??

    Posted by: Krystal at February 16, 2009 2:29 PM

    Jill, I do have a few questions to ask you about this, and I will be sending those along with my resume.

    Hmm. Well, I _do_ desperately need a job, but not enough to change my pro-choice stance. Oh well. Back to the job hunt!

    I bet you would be really good at it too...except for the...well, you know.

    If error correction is part of the job for a "pro-life" site, it's gonna be more than 20 hour a week position.

    Right, Tina, because the pro-choicer's give such acurate information about fetal development...

    Posted by: Lauren at February 16, 2009 5:54 PM

    No, Tina, I don't think the job involves deleting posts from trolls.

    I thought your comment was hilarious! :) If you are a troll then just say so. It makes my job easier.

    Just consider my twenty hours over five or six days a week to be a contribution to the cause.

    I would love to send in my resume...this sounds like it is right up my alley. However, is this a position that could be accomplished in accordance with a separate full-time job? If not, then I completely understand.

    Posted by: Becca at February 17, 2009 12:31 PM

    I would love to send a resume. May I embed links to some of my online work?

    Posted by: Milehimama at February 17, 2009 8:17 PM

    Becca, I would say yes, if the other job is an afternoon or evening job. Most hours on JS/PLP will be in the morning, I would expect.

    Milehi - thanks, got your resume!

    Posted by: Jill Stanek at February 18, 2009 8:47 AM

    Thanks, Jill! I work till 3:00 pm everyday. It's sounds like a wonderful opportunity, and under different circumstances I would definitely be sending you my resume! I hope you find just who you are looking for to fill this position!
