First, a story, then your regularly scheduled links.  When I saw the first post on this list, it reminded me of something that happened several years ago.

I got a call from an agency to work on a long-term project for a big company.  So far, so good.  They wanted to meet with me first (fine).

They also wanted a drug test.  For a freelance project.

I thought and thought and decided no, I couldn’t do it.  It’s not right (in my opinion).  Some of my friends thought I was crazy.  Maybe, but I had to live with myself.  And now, your links.

By the way, what do you think?  Was I right? Or nuts? And, has anything like this happened to you? What did  you do?
