Distinction needs an editor (again) *


Laurie Pike at LA.com is on a roll today [not so fast...see below *], blogging that her old job as editor of Distinction magazine has gone vacant again. She reports that acting editor Gary Walther is leaving for a job in New York and that Holly Palance seems to be next in line for the (apparently thankless) post. Palance is executive editor of Santa Barbara magazine and, I assume, the former Buzz columnist, actress and daughter of Jack Palance. Pike says that Distinction's freelance staffers were told today they would have to reapply for their positions. (It was Pike who posted earlier on the departure of Heather John.)

* Or not: LA.com has yanked the blog post mentioning Walther and Palance. Asked by email to explain, Pike was direct: "No comment."
