Re: “Esse: Purse museum for Little Rock

I will proudly pay $10 to see the Esse purse exhibit! I think it is amazing that a single woman, Anita Davis, is completely responsible for the revitalization of South Main St. Because of her and her extreme generosity this area has blossomed into a beautiful thing.

Ms. Peacock, I usually enjoy reading your entries, but I think the reference to Rembrandt was a low blow. Please do not detract people from coming to see this new exciting thing in SOMA!

Re: “Smirnoff planning on fighting dismissal from Oxford American

Jennifer, you are so right!! I just know there has got to be someone out there, brilliant, who is itching to take the helm. I love the magazine so much, and really look forward to the music issue each year. It's probably my favorite pub, but that could just be because I'm Southern.

I do know one thing, Marc will fight to the end!!! Tooth and nail! Warwick Sabin could not have found a worst nemesis. This could really hurt Sabin.

Re: “Smirnoff planning on fighting dismissal from Oxford American

Why yes, Jennifer, I have. One would not call him a genius by conversation, but his dedication and determination to produce brilliant magazine is relentless. And for a Northerner he has hit the 'real' South on the head for many years. Look, I can't stand him as much as the next guy, and I would never invite him into my home or even have lunch with him. But, I'm wondering if some of these posters have ever read or even opened The Oxford American. It's over, he's gone. I just hope the heart and soul of the publication isn't lost.

Seiner, are we a little bitter? You sound quite pretentious yourself. The OA is an incredible magazine with exceptional content. Conway (the middle of nowhere) is very nice and a rapidly growing city. Also, 50K is not bad in this economy. Take a pill.

Re: “Smirnoff planning on fighting dismissal from Oxford American

The comments at the Chicago Reader are equally bad: http://www.chicagoreader.com/Bleader/archi…

Marc Smirnoff is definitely a creep and a major asshole, but he really is a genius. I just can't imagine the OA without him! But, I guess everyone is replaceable. I'm just not sure in this case.

Re: “OA guessing game

My vote is for Lindsey Millar!! Oh wait, he already has a job. Still, I think he would make a great editor for The Oxford American.
