Maybe it’s not such a bad idea that Jayson Blair, the 33-year-old former New York Times reporter and fabulist, responsible for the resignations of the Times’ two top editors, turn his hand to teaching people how to live. “People say, ‘Wait a minute. You’re a life coach?’ That makes no sense,'” Blair, whose journalism career crashed after the Times discovered vast instances of plagiarism and fakery in his work, told the Associated Press. “Then they think about my life experiences and what I’ve been through and they say ‘Wait a minute. It does make sense.’ ”
