Can't We All Just Cook And Get Along?
Shared by Miss Heidi, a nice little opinion piece about the backlash against Julie Powell in the wake of the movie release of Julie & Julia: Stop Hating Julie Powell, Please.
I thought this audience might enjoy it!

I took the movie as a story about someone who tried to tap into a passion (writing) through a hobby (cooking). She made it unique, good for her, and many have followed, including me. That people try to hold her up as someone to emulate as a chef, a writer, a spouse, or whatever, is another unique issue perhaps endemic to out celebrity-focused culture. Take her for what she is: blogger cum writer, not saint, not idol.
