Interviewing for current job but new boss. How to make a good decision?

Should I mention salary discussions in an interview thank you note?

Yesterday, I had a third interview with the same company and I want to send a followup note today. The interview went well until we got to salary discussions. I was caught off guard and did not respond as well as I should have. I already know I should have had her give me numbers first, but like I said, I was caught off guard when she asked me how much I was expecting. I told her what I made in my last position, which was in a very expensive city and now I’m in a small Midwestern city. I knew as the number was coming out of my mouth that I was saying the wrong thing. [more inside]

Now I'm wondering whether I've screwed myself here. [more inside]

I asked about salary too soon. How do I recover?

Help me recover from my faux pas! I am applying for a new job (within the agency I currently work for) and I asked about the salary before the interview, which the supervisor did not like. How can I handle this so I don't completely blow my chance at this job? [more inside]
