    Here I was hoping they fired their EDITORIAL director!! Not that I'd want a j-j-j-j*b, of course...just that their editorial director is the one who should have left to make the vacancy!

    2 weeks vacation??? 2 lousy weeks? 50 weeks work a year???

    I reckon, this year, I've done 2 weeks work and sat on my ass around 50.

    What is the point of any occupation that takes 50 weeks a year? Unless its a vocation like 'artist' or 'nun', or something you do because you'd do it paid or not.

    50 weeks a year is an enormous percentage of a life. You could mathematically get about the same effect by taking a year off then shooting yourself.
