Scott Gold on gold in the Los Angeles Times

Fun with bylines: A few days ago, I pointed out Washington Post reporter Tom Hamburger’s piece about food and the First Lady.

I also noticed that the Sunday New York Times has a piece on a “secret” strip joint, written by Mosi Secret, who tells his Twitter followers that he’s “looking for unusual stories of sin in NYC: Gambling, sex and other vices that normally stay underground.”
