Parting ways with Crux L.A.

Journalist Donnell Alexander has been talking recently about he and his fiance being the "founding curators" of an upcoming Los Angeles culture website called Crux L.A. Well, that honeymoon is over. Alexander posts today:

Neille Ilel and I are no longer involved with Crux LA. We played a significant role in developing the site, but walked away this week on grounds of principal. Crux is not a Southland Publishing product. It does, however, have Southland tendencies.

We hope it gets well soon.

That's a little dig at his former employer, which published New Angeles and CityBeat. Alexander, who mea culpas in the comments for misspelling principle, says he'll sell you some business cards cheap. Crux LA says on its website, "We are building a place to engage and network as only Angelenos can. A complete take on life in L.A...."
