Are you kidding me? The longtime editor of the L.A. Weekly gets into a tussle with the publisher and departs, and all this juicy story rates in the L.A. Times is a few sentences on the food blog? It's difficult to know which publication is more pathetic, the Times or the Weekly. . . .

Perhaps Bruni's shoes have been filled after all...
