Reporter in Livingston:
"Work hard, build lots of sources, make shit anyway."
Have a trust fund or well-paid spouse to supplement your pay/lifestyle. No, actually, the job is inherently ideal because people want to read what you have to say; you get to hang out with bright and amusing co-workers in a cubicle-free pod; you can come and go as you please (after deadline); and it's fun to do something different everyday. But it gets demoralizing that the skill set required to manage all this is unique. The job ought to pay a lot more in general.

Reporter in Louisville:
"Verify."
Verify everything anyone tells you. Verify everything you hear and see. Everyone always has his own agenda.

Reporter in Harrisburg:
"The time it takes to do it and irregular hours."
Be open minded, curious, dependable, and fair.
