    Give Me a Job

    Give me a job… give me a job
    I’ll work for food and I won’t be a slob
    Give me a job, give me a job for food

    “You can take this job and shove it”
    Merle Haggard once made it clear
    But times are lean and in between
    Just pass that job over here

    One two three four; Give me a job…

    $1.4 million and job stability. Not much to talk about there.

    Isn’t it time to throw your hat in the ring? What’s the worse thing they can do? Laugh? Tell you to go back to Jerry’s meth …err…..media lab.

    To witless:

    NPR vs National Geographic? Seems a no brainer to me (and millions of others I would suspect).

    And when the Benjamin difference is huge, of course it is about them. I’m not sure I get your position on this.

    Talk about brain drain. How will NPR ever replace this Knell fellow? What; with his credentials and extensive broadcast experience. How about bringing in Roger Ailes? No; he never went to law school.
    Putting aside sarcasm, etc. I bet McEnroe could do a good job.
    Knell graduated from Grant High School in Los Angeles, California, and earned a BA in political science from UCLA in 1975, followed by a law degree from Loyola Law School in L.A. in 1978.[1][3] While at UCLA, he worked on the school’s newspaper, the Daily Bruin.[1]
    Ailes attended the Warren city schools. Later, he was inducted into Warren High School’s Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame.[2] In 1962, Ailes received a bachelor’s degree from Ohio University, Athens, Ohio.[3]
