Bette Sinclair on Karen Brooks: "Hits Me In My Heart Chakra."

Continuing with Karen Brooks Appreciation Era, powerhouse publicist Bette Sinclair , right--who represents Bruce Carey's empire, among others--writes in with some thoughts on the former Oregonian dining editor's recent letting go, along with thirty-six other staff.

I’m mystified. A tremendous loss for Portland food community. Karen was there at the beginning of Portland’s food scene and cuisine,
and she has institutional memory that is irreplaceable. She is la reina. Her writing and instincts are tops, a real talent.

Hits me in my heart chakra.

More off-the-record WTF's have been trickling in from restaurateurs throughout the city, leading this to be, truly, the tragedy of the week.
