I guess I misunderstood--I thought The Times was a respectable newspaper that can be relied on to write insightful stories about meaningful political, social and artistic events.
After reading "Power Eating," I realized I was mistaken. This frivolous bit of pulp about the eating habits of a handful of entertainment industry insiders was baffling in its inanity.
I do not doubt that there are readers out there who are interested in these habits, but one would think that The Times would have higher standards for itself. Moreover, it is most disturbing to think about the many interesting and significant arts and entertainment issues that could have benefited from coverage.
