Marilyn Hagerty Wire

marilyn-hagerty-olive-garden-eater.jpgOver at the Awl, Maria Bustillos and David Roth tackle the spectacle that has become of Marilyn Hagerty's review of the Grand Forks, ND Olive Garden. Did the review go viral because "people were laughing at this FAIL old lady and her FAIL city"? Or was there a "kind of a reverse-patronizing" going on? Either way, "nobody should have to pay huge sums to be made to feel like you've been dusted inside and out with elderly garlic powder," or as Hagerty herself put it, "There are seats for those who are waiting."
