I'm overqualified: I'll come out and say it. I'd like a job as an editorial writer/columnist/blogger. I'd like to get paid for writing about whatever I want to write about.
Unfortunately, it appears that I'm too intelligent to qualify in today's newspaper industry.
Exhibit B (exhibit A was Maureen Dowd, below) comes from Xrlq who notes that editorial writers at the Los Angeles Times don't have to master reading comprehension or critical thinking skills.
So, I'm taking suggestions for the most effective and least painful methods for lowering my IQ.
