Re: “UPDATE Oxford American's Warwick Sabin to lead Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub

While I know Marc Smirnoff and fully appreciated what he accomplished with creating and editing the OA, and was sad to see him leave, especially in such a controversial way, I have to disagree with his assessment of Warwick Sabin, the outgoing publisher.

Marc's characterization of Sabin falls short in my view and comes across sounding more vindictive than anything else....

To my knowledge, Sabin stayed out of Smirnoff's way when they worked together at the magazine - in other words, letting him have editorial control. And Warwick has always come across as sincere in his efforts to keep the magazine afloat, relevant, and expansive in its content and readership.

Re: “Oxford American, Chapter Umpteen

I heard that a criminal investigation is being asked for.... Any verification of that?

Re: “Smirnoff planning on fighting dismissal from Oxford American

Re: the couple of shots on this thread that have been taken at Sabin, bare in mind that, according to articles reporting about this, it was a board decision to fire Smirnoff and the managing editor.... I feel pretty certain that they must have had pretty good reason to do so, otherwise it wouldn't have happened. And with Smirnoff right off the bat admitting that he did something illegal makes you ask ,"what else did he do that he shouldn't have?" And does he feel because he was the founder that he can do whatever he wants and get away with it?? Lastly, Smirnoff, while a gifted man, drove that magazine into the ground a couple of times. If it weren't for Sabin's sound managerial style and business judgment, the OA would have been extinct years ago. As it stands now, by all accounts, the OA is doing great.

Re: “What happened to Paty?

A sad, sad story. Let's hope the killer(s) are found and brought to justice soon so that family can find some measure of peace.

Re: “Occupy Little Rock agrees to move to new site

It remains to be seen as to whether moving the site was a smart move. However, I support what they're doing.

This isn't about freeloading "hipsters" as some people on this thread have try to described them. It's about Americans using their voices. It's about standing up for what they believe in. It's about promoting positive change for all of us ... the "little guy."

And they aren't doing it from the comforts of their homes. These aren't armchair quarterbacks bitching from the sofa. They're actually in public demanding action.

So, unless you're part of the 1%, I don't see what the problem is. The rest of us, whether we like it or not, are the 99%. Stay strong Occupy Little Rock.

Re: “Another Walker-Mays state real estate deal

A leopard doesn't change its spots.

Another good ol' boy deal for Richard Mays. Kinda like when he got paid to be an "ombudsman" for the company that harvested tainted blood from Cummins Prison. Then there was the Democratic fund raising scandal he was smack dab in the middle of when he was Vice Chairman of the DNC. I also seem to remember the feds going after him over a HUD scandal re: property in Little Rock. And of course, he represented his crooked friend Judge David Hale during Whitewater.... Beebe should've done better than align himself with this ethically challenged operator.
