The best part is...

...if you compare your original piece with the magazine version, it really wasn't edited at all. She moved some stuff around, from your "Discussion" sections at the end of each recipe, to make it read a little more linearly for magazine purposes, and in a very few cases she added some words (presumably to fill up the space she needed filled), but 99 percent of your copy is intact. Clearly, it was not "in very bad need of editing," nor is it "much better now" -- although very likely more people ARE reading it. ;-)

Great article, by the way. Speaking as a freelance writer myself, I'd say for the amount of research you put into it, you (or the Columbia j-school) deserve a lot more than $130.
