Brett Anderson Fired From NOLA’s Times-Pic

He should've scored that Sifton gig.

Brett Anderson — the excellent food writer from New Orleans, whom New York chefs were frantically and misguidedly preparing to take Sam Sifton's job — has been fired from the Times-Picayune. Eater NOLA notes that Anderson tweeted a link this morning to the Replacements' "Goddamn Job," asking if it was the song of the day, and that his firing was confirmed by the Gambit. As a James Beard winner in one of the country's most important culinary cities, the decision just doesn't add up ... even if the paper is slowly phasing out of print. Nobody's po-boy, Anderson will no doubt find something even better. [Eater NOLA]
