The Great Oz Has Spoken...

I am very interested to see what the talk will be in Blogville about Stephen Drucker's editor's letter this month in House Beautiful.  (If any, maybe I'm the only nerd that reads editor's letters.)  He is politely asking that decorators, design bloggers and those that comment play a little nicer.  This is a hard one.  I think it is so easy for people to type mean words on a blog comment, things they would never say to another person face to face.  What do we do though when we read or see something that we know is total bullsh*t?  I am seeing in my mind the most fake southern woman, one I would really despise, saying (while touching the other person on the arm or shoulder of course), "Oh honey, you know that is the just the most stupid thing you have ever said, but you are so sweet.  You know I think your work is just precious, but this room is ugly beyond words."  Read Mr. Drucker here:

But, he knocked.  Why?  We have no doorbell at this time.  Just this:
