2010_11_gimes.jpgFormer Times critic William Grimes writes in to defend the Dining Section against Sunday's reader letter to the Public Editor: "...critics perform the same function as our drama, book, and music critics. Yet cost objections do not seem to hound those folks the way they do the restaurant critics. The Met is very expensive, yet we cover all Met productions without any sense of guilt. Yankees tickets are expensive, but we do not balance out the coverage by reporting on fewer Yankees games and more Cyclones games." The whole letter is worth a read. [NYT; previously]
