Meh - I can't say I -totally- disagree with this statement but...I think Steve Coomes does an admirable job when it comes to calling it like he sees it. When it comes to Robin and Marty I've observed them both do an admirable job of what is known as "damning by faint praise"...ya just gots tah read between the lines a bit more carefully

Some of the phrases that were bolded, didn't make sense in what I *thought* the article was attempting to convey. I was under the impression that the article's slant was that Louisville food critics are just too darn nice and easy going. Fair enough, I think we could probably use some more realistic reviews. But the bolded sentences just seemed to be random bolding of phrases the writer did not like for whatever reason. The highlighted sentences did not help to convey his message, in my opinion.
Then there's the idea of taking other peoples' writing, and putting it through your own personal shredder for some sort of social or monetary gain. I seriously doubt Zach would like for his writing to be put to that same test. I found it lacking in originality and rather juvenile, to be honest.The entire article (which was comprised mostly of others' works) had a smirky, condescending tone which I found extremely off-putting. I generally wouldn't say any such thing about another's endeavors, but I believe the author feels that we should be more honest...so I am.

Whoa...easy on Zach guys. He is exactly the type of young professional talent the city is trying to attract and keep.
It should also be kindly pointed out that the Courier awards a maximum of four stars, not five.
