LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Los Angeles Times has suspended the blog of a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who posed as an Internet reader to defend his own column and attack his conservative foes.

The Times apparently learned of Michael Hiltzik's multiple identities from another blogger, Patrick Frey, who was slammed by the columnist under a pseudonym. Frey, author of a blog called Patterico's Pontifications (www.patterico.com), traced the writer back to Hiltzik's computer.

What does the LA Times have to do with his blog? Were they hosting it?

It's more like, "LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Los Angeles Times has suspended the blog covered up the evidence of a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist ..."

You can't have a pullet if you don't have a cock.

There is song over this country about a farmer who brings his rooster and hen to the fair, but they run off, so he is running down the street after his poultry shouting at everyone: "Someboby please, please, catch my cock and pullet."
