Wanted: A Daily Demolition Reporter

Demolition by Alex Steffler

This city’s ongoing roll call of doomed structures needs a new herald. Yes, Swamplot is still seeking a special someone to prepare our Daily Demolition Report from city permit records for each weekday morning. How to tell if that someone might be you: you’re a text-processing whiz, pay attention to detail, have a working knowledge of Houston geography, and the thought of approaching bulldozers gets your engines revving.

This is a regular freelance position that doesn’t pay much (do you like cream in your coffee?) but does provide a front-row seat to the day’s teardown action. (Plus, your efforts will bring a little joy to Houston’s vast population of demolition junkies.) If this sounds like the mini-gig of your dreams, tell us why — and tout your credentials to us — through the Swamplot tip line.
