This is unfolding via Twitter, so I'm not certain which of Tim's articles made the cut, but I believe this tweet refers to Specifics announced!

Carman on Why D.C. Has So Little Great Ethnic Food

Tim Carman was on Warren Rojas' chat today, and a reader asked him about the difference between D.C. and Virginia's dining scenes. CARMAN:

Why no, because Carman's piece barely touches on high-fructose corn syrup. Closest he comes is quoting someone else saying bagel quality has declined since many bagelries [...]
