With Dean Baquet becoming chief ed. at NYT today I will note that a high point of our cover profile of him a decade ago at E&P, when he was editor of the L.A. Times, was a visit to his family's then not-so-famous restaurant in New Orleans: Li'l Dizzy's. We even featured him on the cover posing at the eatery. Later, they started set up a regular booth at JazzFest and I enjoyed the Trout Baquet. Then scenes in Treme were often shot there.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
