Warm fuzzy columnist Dianna Griego Erwin has resigned from the Bee under a cloud of suspicion. It appears that she has been fabricating sources for her column. She claims she isn't guilty and that her name will be cleared but has resigned anyway.
This isn't the first time the Bee has had problems like this. Does anyone remember the TV columnist (I can't remember his name) who quit or was fired amid charges or plagiarism, and then was later rehired and did it again? That was crazy. He seemed to be having crazy personal problems and claimed that the stress drove him to plagiarize Steven King, among others.
I'm busy (we're submitting our abstract for the neuroscience meeting today, yay!) but I'll try to blog later.
