In the food section, they run a column called Daily Digest (subtitled “what one local ate over the course of a day”) where the journalist picks an area resident, publishes that person’s photo and describes what the person ate that day. Seriously.
In today’s paper, for instance, the subject had coffee, a small glass of milk and the rest of his daughter’s peanut butter toast before leaving for work.
Huh? Who the heck cares? There’s no more exciting news than this in the world of fine dining and nutrition?
This has got to be the lamest feature ever.
Has your newspaper published anything less interesting?
