I couldn't wait to reply!
I just HAD to drop you a line to let you know that as a comic, I thoroughly enjoyed your craigslist ad looking for a writer with a college degree. And by "enjoyed" I mean "laughed at hysterically." You are expecting a highly educated writer of profession to NOT ONLY accept $6 for 250 words worth of their expterise but to do extensive research required for the writing as well. I'm reminded of an old cliche' regarding wants and hands:
Want in one hand, "your craigslist ad" in the other.
Best of luck to you!
