Not hard for anything to be better than the DN nowadays. I no longer consider it a newspaper.
It was very good for a while there.
Food and wine writing in town is spotty. Sean W still has his moments, but I wish he'd be a little more controversial at times. I wish Liz Feltham knew something about wine because her food reviews are reliable. Spurr is an embarassment. The Don Cherry of food writing. Problem is, he'd like that moniker. And the monthlies actually get out of Region writers, or NSLC shills to write for them on drink, which is a disgrace.
