Marilyn Hagerty, newspaper food critic from Grand Forks, North Dakota is still at it at the age of 87, writing five weekly newspaper columns--factual, and with a nice sense of humor. A popular reporter for the Grand Forks Herald for thirty years, her review of the local Olive Garden went viral in 2012. That led to national TV interviews and appearances, and a book published with an Introduction by chef, Anthony Bourdain.
