When I late last year conducted a reader survey, one of the questions I failed to ask is how, when and where folks are reading The Food Section.

Because I didn’t want to waste people’s time, I stuck to topics that were relevant to my coverage choices: If I’d learned 29 percent of subscribers lived in Alabama, for instance, I might make a beeline for the 11th Circuit when looking through court documents.
