Imagine if Deep Throat wrote for the late-and-much-lamented Gourmet, and you have some vague approximation of the latest news in food writing, in which the hilarious Twitter mashup food personality @RuthBourdain will be writing a column for Does this say anything about the state of food culture? Of social media? Of print journalism? Maybe. Do we care? Probably not.
