Stolen Pastrami!

As pointed out by Ask a Mexican columnist Gustavo Arellano in an OC Weekly blog post, The New York Times has ripped off City Weekly--and original author Ted McDonough isn't even here to rub our noses in it! ---

The NYT article is all about how Utahns love their pastrami burgers (specifically, of the Zion-originating Crown Burgers variety), which McDonough covered years ago in "Greeks Bearing Burgers." As we recall here in the office, the Times reporter even called McDonough months ago, which may or may not explain why the new article is eerily similar to City Weekly's. Imitation, flattery, blah blah blah. At least you don't have to pay to read it ... yet.
