Conversely, the people at Esquire (Hearst) treated us in MARCH quite well.
 They were a pleasure to work with, including their subcontractors, and
everything was handled with professionalism, from the contract to the
schlepping to getting us our paycheck.  We had a fine-print credit in the
physical magazine, and a big red hyperlink here:
http://www.esquire.com/style/fashion-story/suits-0708 ... so we're happy
campers.  (I asked if I could write a sidebar noting the Esquire link to
Crunch, etc., but they declined.  Oh well.)
