Professionals in Pajamas

The University of Southern California is hiring a blogger and paying $45,000 for a six month project. The funny thing is that this is listed on JournalismJobs.com. The job requires fluency in Japanese, but the point remains: the vast majority of "real journalists" will never get close to a six figure income. So the next time Joe Schmo at the Daily Fishwrap comes up with another snide remark about bloggers in pajamas, be cool, be calm, and smile.
Our day will come. Soon.
