Just Steer Clear of the Anthrax Tower, and You'll Do Fine

It's a lovely Friday following a fine Thursday night.  Just stay clear of maybe-not-biosafe cold war relics and you'll probably do OK; maybe snagging one of these jobs wouldn't hurt, either.

We’re sort of amused by the low-key, this-could-be-any-job feel of this listing for Copy Editor with what we think of as the exact-opposite-of-low-key-kind-of-employer in Stamford, CT.

In keeping with today’s unofficial high holiday, we’d like to point out that the Director, Government Relations post with Americans for Safe Access (to safe and legal access to marijuana for therapeutic use and research, of course) remains unfilled (or perhaps, just forgotten-to-be-deleted) since last March.

Best wishes for a fine Friday and super-great, Anthrax-Tower-avoiding weekend from your favoritepublic affairs jobs resource.
