2011_01_sietsemaBK.jpgRobert Sietsema offers his two cents on how unglamorous the Times critic gig has become: "One of the problems with the job as currently defined is that it requires extreme overwork. I've seen several critics come and go at the Old Gray Lady, and I can tell you that the sheer number of hours per week now required to do the job is flabbergasting. I think Sifton had to be in a perpetual frenzy to do it." [FitR]
