Over the past couple of months, I've been noticing less and less of Orange County Register food critic Brad A. Johnson in his ostensible employer. His original beat was to offer a weekly review of a high-end restaurant and a shorter review, with occasional forays into listicles and weird personal campaigns (like trying to get a letter-grade system installed in OC). But since the beginning of this year, he's only offered two reviews in a week twice--and some weeks, Johnson hasn't offered a review at all, leaving food coverage to the execrable Nancy Luna. What gives?
