The Wizards of Odds revealed
He just got laid off by the Los Angeles Times -- one of about 150. And now we know who the mystery author of the blog "The Wizard of Odds." Here he explains. He wrote the following today: "Journalism is a career I have cherished since my first newspaper job at 16. The downward spiral of the newspaper business has helped me prepare for this day. But it still feels like my best friend just died. I've kept this site under wraps from all except a handful of confidants." He's Jay Christensen. Here's and link to what appears to be his resume. Good luck, Jay.
