The troubles roiling the highest corridors of power at the New York Times this week owe at least part of their notoriety to a man in his bathrobe who surfs the Web while sitting in a one-bedroom apartment in Evanston, Ill. Jim Romenesko, 49, is an unassuming former Milwaukee magazine media columnist who maintains a no-frills Web site that has become the dominating voice in the five-week media circus surrounding one of the most influential newspapers in the country.

This was news: Little brother Tim had fallen into the toilet bowl. After a few seconds, the toddler managed to pull himself out. He wasn't injured, only embarrassed. And, just his luck, his older brother published a newspaper devoted to household events, particularly calamities like this. Jim Romenesko, 10, played the story big on the front page. He distributed the newspaper (circulation: 1) among his family.

Who knew the bleached-blond bomber could attract this much attention? Guy Fieri probably hasn't seen his name in print this often since, well, forever. But Pete Wells' much-discussed takedown of Fieri's new Times Square restaurant has generated a ton of comment. One of the best things to come out of it has been journalism guru Jim Romenesko's roundup of restaurant critics across the country recounting their bad reviews and the reactions to them. Our own Jonathan Gold leads off, remembering his review of Olive Garden (written for the LA Weekly)

These usually overcaffeinated folks can be found coffee-talking online at Starbucksgossip.com. With its mission to "monitor America's favorite drug dealer," the blog was created in August 2004 by Evanston, Ill.
