First of all, I think I have to disagree here without actually having
checked out the salary calculator about which Eric speaks. When you
look at the STC salary survey, the median salary by 2 digit zip codes
is $44,900. And this *includes* Orange County where, I believe,
salaries are a bit higher than in San Diego.

I think $54K for a writer in SD is a bit on the high side... and yes,
I'm good and yes, I've been writing for years, and no, I've not been
offered $54K in a while! <grin>
