Good Help Is Hard to Find
Most people think my life as Editor-in-Chief of The Manhattan Morning After Post is great.
I haven't seen my boss in three years, which sounds great, except that
I have 12 other bosses in his absence.
The board not only expects me to run their largest franchise, but also
coordinate their international news network, if it can be called that,
and run the Morning After website-
and all on a budget smaller than my Manhattan competitors the Times
So my life is hard enough without all of the incompetent employees with
which I have to deal.
I have fact-checkers who can't seem to check facts.
My page designers are threatening to go on strike.
And the useless interns are starting to wonder if they should get paid.
The paper’s high-profile contributors are no picnic either.
Sure Chip Foxx's "Foxx-Eye View" is the most popular column

Hey P.F., here's an idea- next time build two time machines.
And as for Jones, I have to ask-
Are you going to show up to work sometime this decade?
How's about you send me something that resembles, I don't know... A
I'm sick of having to patch together your megalomaniacal rants, soapbox
speeches and travel journals into something coherent.
Now I know how the editors of Mein Kampf must have felt.
Two Pulitzers my ass.
