I'd never heard of The Brooklyn Eagle, much less knew Walt Whitman (!) was its editor for two years, but at one time, it had the largest circulation of any afternoon daily newspaper in the United States.

After wondering whether the fact that the New York Times and the Washington Post publish their food sections on the same day was a mere coincidence, I set off to research the question on the Internet and found no clear answer.
