Heh. I just found my cover letter to them...here's an excerpt for your enjoyment:
As a writer, I'm also an avid reader. At the moment I'm reading a book called "The No-Asshole Rule." Its premise (and it is a serious one!) is the idea that when a business is looking to hire a person, the team agrees not to hire any "assholes." This means that even if a person has won the Nobel Prize, colleagues shouldn't hire them if their personality will shake the overall well-being of a team.
Not only am I *not* an asshole, but I'm a great person and an overall pleasure to work with.
