The Gambit confirms.

Yesterday was a bad day in New Orleans. (Overheard at happy hour at Twist: "The dark cloud of the Times-Picayune hangs over the city today.") With the Times-Picayune slashing its staff on its way to becoming a new, "digitally-focused news organization," the news broke early that the paper's restaurant critic and features writer, Brett Anderson, had been one of those to meet the ax. The news was met with a combination of rage, anger, rage, incredulity and snark, all directed at those people from out of state who own the Times-Pic.

Above, some of the best responses from Twitter, featuring local people gettin' fired up, notable critics from across the country giving condolences and a couple of jokes that landed particularly well.
