We have waited a long time to get an e-mail from our girl-crush Carina Chocano. We were hoping for a plus-one invite, or at the very least a Facebook “poke.” How sad we were to receive this as our first e-mail from one of the best film critics in the country:
So, I’m one of the ones out at the Times today. Just wanted to let you know and say thanks for all the kind words over the years.
We’re outraged by the bone-headedness of this decision: The LAT needs more excellent, smart coverage — not less. But at the very least we’re sure Carina will find something bigger and better. Hell, with all the cuts these days, it won’t be hard to find something bigger and better than the L.A. Times.
