An argument for freelance writing

This guy went to Slate magazine and said, "Hey, I'd like to test condoms and write an article about it." He graded them based on three criteria: Feeling, Lubrication and Ease of Application, and Asethetics.

I suppose we should thank James Verini for a potentially valuable public service, helping us guys separate the wheat from the chaff in condom-shopping. (Hmm... maybe "chaff" isn't the best word to use when talking about condoms. But I'm about to use a cream-of-the-crop analogy, either.)

Carry on with your day.
