The Kindness of Strangers
In all the rumpus about the goings-on at the Oxford American, we've yet to see this nugget: You can donate to ousted editors Marc Smirnoff and Carol Ann Fitzgerald using PayPal!
Yes, instead of giving money to your house of worship, the fund for widows and orphans or efforts to stop sex trafficking of children, you can help Marc and Carol Ann launch their next venture, a promised literary project.
That news is right there on their website, EditorsinLove.com, though one has to click through to the "Our Future" page:
"After our many years of work, Marc and Carol Ann will be using the next six months to reflect, read, and write. We already know that in six months we will be working with a few others on a new literary project. We don't have a lot of money so if there's anyone who would like to contribute to our next venture (or to our reflection period!), we are open to that."
We thought our readers would be relieved to know there was an outlet for the vast outpouring of sympathy this couple elicits.
