The Smell Test

The New York times has a scent critic.

This is the same New York Times that is struggling to stay afloat; the crown jewel of U.S. newspapers, an industry shedding franchises and writers left and right. Yet they have a reporter dedicated to the scent beat.

I do not advocate shedding writers. I am for full employment for journalists. And the New York times has already made cuts in the newsroom. So how can they continue to afford a perfume reporter? It doesn't smell right.
