From Yahoo today:

"One of New York City's most famous food critics is out of a job.

New York magazine confirmed Thursday that Gael Greene — known for her flamboyant hats and influential opinions — is no longer working for the publication.

Magazine spokeswoman Lauren Starke says that in a "tightening economy, our company is simply no longer able to support four separate restaurant critics." Three other critics remain.

There was no immediate response to an e-mail sent to Greene.

Greene was the magazine's chief restaurant critic from 1968 to 2002. After that, she wrote a weekly column called "Insatiable Critic."

Starke says this is Greene's last week at the magazine, and her last review will appear in Monday's issue."

Maybe she can get a job running one of The Big Three. Seems even a food critic is smart enough to know that when you go to to beg for money from your country, you shouldn't show up in your private jets. They didn't even "jet-pool".
I'm sure that Chrysler, Ford, and or GM would benefit from her menu improvements for the yearly Christmas parties that my taxes will pay for. Yay.
