Margaret B. Jones/Peggy Seltzer: Foundation a Fake, But What About Her Tattoo?

Kevin Allman points out that the NYT decides that checking the facts is a good idea:

If we can’t find ways to check key facts, names, graduation claims, etc., we should hold the story until we can verify them, and if we can’t, we should be suspicious. Live and learn…

Ah, remember the good old days?

Radar has Steve Huff’s major scoop: the HomeGirl Hosejob AOL journal:

im jus a gurl…a simple one at that. i was a soldier once, but i think i am semi-retired now. dont doubt that i am doing my work still, only what that work is has changed and as someone told me once, “u are not a soldier unless u are in a war”. these days im enjoyin my peace, fillin my head an hopin an pushin toward big things.

Edukation. im not talkin that white washed BS, but truth. we all need to fill our heads with something other than what is shoved at us and oviousally not workin. we need to start understandin the struggle that we are left in and how it has evolved so we understand what we do and why.

And of course, the MySpace page. (You didn’t think she was on Facebook, did you?) Seltzer describes herself:

I am a mother, an aunty, a godmother, a participant in the gang truce process, a loyal friend to those within my circle, someone’s future wife;)and one of the best cooks you could ever meet

Is the cookbook thing dead then? Is that why Mimi Read got the NYT assignment–she knows neckbones?

Agent Faye Bender helped Seltzer set up some phony foundation. Our agent doesn’t even take our calls.

Susan Salter Reynolds feels sorry for Seltzer. The LAT has gotten two columns and an editorial out of this, but why we have’t we heard from Erin Aubrey Kaplan? If there was ever a time for some black outrage, this is it, folks.

And here’s a local question–how did a nice girl from Sherman Oaks meet MaddRonald Chatman? And wow! Inga Muscio thanks him as well. Unless of course, she means Ronald Chatman, headmaster of the St. Timothy’s Episcopal Day School in Compton. Are there a lot of Episcopalians in the Rollin 20s?

Robert Pho is considered the master of the pitbull tattoo.

LAT To Give Three Columnists the Axe

erinaubrykaplan.jpgErin Aubry Kaplan has been dumped by the LAT and says two more Op-Ed writers will follow — though she doesn’t know which ones.

The writer, who started in 2005, tells LA Observed:

“I have 4 more columns to go and that’s it. Rather sudden. I’m disappointed but not very surprised, given the state of the Trib. They said they were cutting 2 others, but not sure who.”
