Smirnoff v. Hodge

Back in February, six months before he was fired as editor of The Oxford American, Marc Smirnoff fired off a fiery and controversial article slamming Garden & Gun magazine for "whitewashing of the South."

Your Outtakes scribe couldn't resist asking The OA's new editor, Roger Hodge, to opine on the magazine that so irritated his predecessor.

"I don't think The OA really has a competitor," Hodge said. "I think Garden & Gun is a fine magazine. ... I have read it. I respect what they're doing. I don't think that they're the same thing that we're doing."
