    65 trumpeters were offered the chance to audition for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra after being chosen from a pool of 286 applicants. They would practice harder, pay their own travel expenses and subject themselves to up to four nerve-wracking days of performing, often alone behind a screen -- all for a shot at the job.

    All that, 20 hours a week practice and if they win, they get a low paying job for being the one of the best at what they do! Gansta rappers all wear bling bling. A clueless society.

    I agree that the folks that win these big jobs should get more than they get, but $75,000+ a year isn't doing to bad at all, particularly in Indiana. I haven't found the story yet but I guessing it's talking about the Assistant Principal job that got filled a little while back.
