  1. Damn and I scored so poorly on that How Libertarian Are You in the War On Terror Quiz.

  2. 200 bucks a week??!

    “That’s like a dollar an hour!”

  3. Define “recent graduate.”

  4. In the general course of things, with certain things depending on the particular candidate, it means “just graduating this spring semester” with an undergrad or graduate degree.

  5. What’s wrong with $200 per week? Most U.S. internships don’t pay anything.

  6. D.A.–Thanks for noting that. And also, it is housing PLUS $200 a week, making the Burton C. Gray Memorial Internship the most rewarding internship I’ve ever heard of–even before considering the sterling quality of the publication and staff you get the pleasure of working with.

  7. And, as a graduating senior looking for internships, I can back up what Brian said about this being really appealing. Interning at Cato, for example, is $700/mo without any housing? — way below what Reason offers. Internships elsewhere, including other publications, are unpaid. I’m sold.

    Also, my stuff’s in the mail 🙂

  8. uhh, still, I worked part-time for 9.50 an hour all through college…it may not have been have intellectually rewarding, but money can buy happiness.

  9. Hooray for Ayn Randian’s healthy attitude toward money and hooray for his/her screen name! From his/her rate in college, I’ll conjecture that Ayn Randian is a lot younger than I am or by now he/she may well be a multi-millionaire.

  10. …making the Burton C. Gray Memorial Internship the most rewarding internship I’ve ever heard of–even before considering the sterling quality of the publication and staff you get the pleasure of working with.

    Yeah, that’s the thing. It’s like: And they get paid too?! Plus the gig’s in LA! Oh yeah well, or DC where “You’ll never find a more wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”. Pick LA, kids.

    Hell, once I hada PAY some out-fit good money just for the privilege of helping paleontologists locate, extract, clean, sort, and categorize dinosaur fossils, often a under merciless Colorado summer sun. Of course we did geta crash in rustic cabins, and along with the meals that they provided, the paleontologist hada entertain all our questions and comments. [Some of which were pretty insipid-not any of mine, of course 🙂 ] It was interesting and fun work but check this out; just to qualify to pay my money for this adventure, I was obligated to work my way thru a reading list, of which I was interested in only about 75% of the material, and really understood only about 50%. We even hada pass an open book test on the reading list before we could go! At one point on this expedition, I was trying to negotiate a narrow ledge with a pretty damn precipitous drop off while carrying two heavy buckets of rocks with fossils in em. I was scared and turned to the paleontologist in backa me and allowed how that I wasn’t too fonda heights. She just said; “You gota do it for science”…
