Parallel universe work places.

My favorite part of The Onion's faux news about forgotten summer interns at "Beacon Press" is the snappy picture of the "Beacon Press" staff. If you saw a photo of the staff of the real Beacon Press, you'd think they were a smart and engaging bunch to work with, and I always have a great time when I walk up Beacon Hill to meet with my colleagues there, but I'd like to clarify something: There is not a room owned by the UUA in Boston so sleek and shiny as the one in the picture, nor is there a staff group that looks this, well, corporate. Not even the Stewardship and Development staff puts on that much starch. Not even I do.

Oh, yes: If you'd like to be an intern at the real Beacon Press, here's what you need to know.

A former Beacon Press staffer mentioned this article to me the other day, and she told me how she tried to remember if there was indeed a Dan Klein who had worked at Beacon. However, she was unable to remember the names of any of the interns who'd worked at Beacon during the last few years.

Ah, funny because it's true.
