It's all a matter of perspective.

Miss J found this ad in her weekly scanning of the Sunday classifieds.
EDITORIAL PAGE EDITOR
A daily Arkansas newspaper seeks a well-written,
thoughtful individual to serve as editorial writer and editorial page editor. Responsibilities will include producing daily local editorials based on discussions with the newspaper editorial board and original research, writing a weekly column, coordinating letters to the editor, managing staff and freelance column writers and interacting with people in the community. Some newsroom copy editing will also be required. The job will require someone who is a quick learner about local issues who can write well-crafted editorials that seek to engage readers and broaden their understanding of issues. An ability to explain and defend the newspaper's editorial perspective is vital. If you can show an ability to write persuasively and accurately, please submit a cover letter, resume, and writing samples (preferably opinion pieces)


That is a description of my dream job. I will be applying.
