First, the feed is truncated. And regular readers of The Deets know how I feel about that. You had better write one heck of an intriguing headline or excerpt to get me to click through. Zimmern managed to do that today when I saw this in my Google Reader:
So I clicked through. What did I find?
– A food critic throwing over the top insults at another food critic about a new restaurant review
– No link to the article Zimmern is upset about, making it difficult to read for myself.
– A half dozen name drops of people I’ve never heard of with titles that mean nothing to me.
– Some interesting commentary on the congressional hearings regarding slaughterhouses.
– Plugs for the previous and next time Andrew will be on the tee vee.
This done with writing that feels like someone is driving 80MPH on the highway while jerking the wheel back and forth. Check out the pairing of the two sentences below:

He respects her opinion, yet feels she needs to be educated by him on what great cooking tastes like?
Swerve, swerve, swerve.
