The entire Times, or just the Arts/Leisure section you critique here?

I find a lot of this to be a function of Arts and Leisure - I think the pressures on the "cultural" pages to produce (they're revenue generators, and, if you think about it, the real selling point of the National Editions) are different than the news pages, and while it's fine to be a grey, dispassionate observer of, say, war news, applying that same dry style to New York's restaurant scene is where the trouble starts. I think the big question here is really how much the Times can be all things to all people - it can be dull and serious and a little too earnest, or it can be New York magazine. I don't think you can be both.
