Brett Anderson Asked Back to the Times-Pic

The ball's in his (food) court.

Too little, too late? Just a few days ago, beloved restaurant critic Brett Anderson was fired from the Times-Picayune in New Orleans. Food writers, famous restaurateurs, and NOLA advocates around the world were collectivity outraged. Now the newspaper says they want Anderson back after he completes the Nieman Foundation for Journalism fellowship at Harvard University, beginning this fall, and that this was always their plan. So, wait, was it all a miscommunication? Or is the paper crawling back begging in the flavor of ... crisis management? [NOLA.com]
