Odd that you should post this the same day this story broke:

Actually, Soulbrotha, I was perhaps too minimalist for my own good. I posted that clip precisely because the Slate story had broken and it seemed that the controversy was all over the net. I wanted to post that clip and just have it stand on its own. But as I wrote on Facebook when the controversy broke, and as this very old clip shows, the "Roxanne Gets Her Degree on the Label's Dime" story was already old news a few weeks ago when it was "broken" by the Daily News and then blogged & tweeted about all over the place. I'm still very curious what made it "newsworthy" after Roxanne herself had been working the lie-myth-lie for so many years. I see now I should have probably written at least a few words instead of just posting up the clip.

Ok. I thought that might have been the case because you don miss a (blood) beat! :)
I have to tell you that this really pissed me off. I was so proud of her when I first saw that clip a year ago. Damn, Roxanne.
