Apologies if someone has already posted this.  From the NY Times -
 

The Dining Section Is Now Food

By SAM SIFTONNOV. 11, 2014

We have renamed this section, in print and online, to reflect its increasingly broad focus on food and drink, restaurants and home cooking, gastronomic trends and innovation. The new name looks forward, to coverage that extends beyond the dining room. But it looks back as well: “Food” was the name of the report Craig Claiborne edited when he joined The New York Times in 1957. It provides the foundation upon which we build today.

"But this is blatant ultracrepidarianism on my part." - Taion

I have a dream of a multiplicity of pastramis.

I wonder how many memos, focus groups, and meetings it took before they finally made this move.

Yes, even the Newspaper Of Record gets things wrong sometimes.

Correction: November 11, 2014

An earlier version of the headline with this obituary described some of John Doar’s work incorrectly. He opposed segregation, not desegregation.

that's slightly different then


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I feel a sudden clear focus and perspective. There is no time for anything inessential. I must focus on myself, my work and my friends. I shall no longer look at “NewsHour” every night. I shall no longer pay any attention to politics or arguments about global warming.

This is fun.

 

I got a "better than 71.1% of the readers", which I'm sure will be low for here.  But only because of two stupid mistakes that I should have known better.
