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 debate Thursday. Get caught up on the race.
What to expect tonight
Tonight's debate is likely to focus on the concerns of African American and Latino voters. Clinton has focused in recent days on issues like gun control, criminal-sentencing reform, and the state of drinking water in Flint, Mich. Sanders has been aggressively moving to appeal to the same voters, combining his core message about economic unfairness with his own calls to reform the criminal-justice system.
South Carolina polling averages
The S.C. Democratic primary is Feb. 27. Clinton has a significant lead in the state, whose primary falls one week after the party's Nevada caucuses.
62% 33%
South Carolina polling averages
Donald Trump leads in the polls as he faces rivals Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz heading into the S.C. GOP primary on Feb. 20.
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.
