Despite government job cutbacks, there may still be some good, really good, jobs out there.

Take, for example, this Federal Aviation Administration notice about “exciting international assignments with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).” That’s a U.N. organization focusing on international aviation safety and security.

Under the section “About the Job”  there’s some general information in addition to a need to like  cold weather — most of the jobs are in ICAO’s headquarters in Montreal.

“Jazz, opera, ballet, film festivals, skiing and auto racing are among the many choices for entertainment or cultural activities in this vibrant city,” the announcement says, not to mention hockey. “A few of the job’s attractions include the diverse working environment, six weeks of annual leave and exemption from U.S. and Canadian taxes.” Excellent.

But wait! You also get “reimbursement of educational expenses for your dependent children.”

So even if you don’t like ballet . . .

The Democrats debated Thursday night. Get caught up on the race.
The Post's Chris Cillizza on the Democratic debate...
On Clinton: She poked a series of holes in Sanders's health-care proposal and broadly cast him as someone who talks a big game but simply can't hope to achieve his goals.

On Sanders: If the challenge was to show that he could be a candidate for people other than those who already love him, he didn't make much progress toward that goal. But he did come across as more well-versed on foreign policy than in debates past.

Fact Checker
Trump’s claim that his border wall would cost $8 billion
The billionaire's claim is highly dubious. Based on the costs of the Israeli security barrier (which is mostly fence) and the cost of the relatively simple fence already along the U.S.-Mexico border, an $8 billion price tag is simply not credible.
