Head of Writers’ Guild Resigns

Charles Holland, the head of the Writers’ Guild of America, West, has resigned after his claims that he served as a Green Beret and played football on a university scholarship were disputed.

He made the claims in an interview with the guild’s magazine, but subsequent searches of military and university records failed to substantiate either claim. Military records show that Mr. Holland served in the National Guard in Illinois and Massachusetts. The university had no record that he played football. But Mr. Holland, whose credits include writing for “JAG,” maintained that he had not lied about his background.

So he made up stuff and then talk about it in the guild’s own magazine? Que cojones.
