Not exactly an easy job, but it would probably be pretty exciting, especially for someone fresh out of journalism school who grew up in a tranquil suburb somewhere. I'll leave it up to readers to question the accuracy of the Journal's description of itself in the want ad below. Gilding the lily is more than acceptable if it means luring someone with journalism skills to Flint.
