(born 1960)[2]

He lives in Columbus, Ohio. [3] [4]

Jeff Smith was born in 1960 in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania.[2]

Smith has cited Charles M. Schultz's Peanuts as a very early influence on his understanding of comics[5] He has also named Walt Kelly's Pogo, which he discovered at the age of nine when a classmate brought a collection of the comics to school,[6] as his "biggest influence in writing comics."[5] Smith began to create comics with the "Bone" characters as early as 1970, when he was about 10 years old.[7]

He graduated in 1978 from Thomas Worthington High School in Worthington, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, where he was a classmate of Jim Kammerud; in 1986 Smith and Kammerud would co-found Character Builders, an animation studio in Columbus where Smith worked for 6 years before leaving to devote himself to comics.[3][8]

Smith attended The Ohio State University, and while there he created a comic strip called "Thorn" for the student newspaper, The Lantern, which included some of the characters who later featured in the Bone series.[9][10]

Working with collaborators, Smith has also written prequel comics related to Bone, which have been collected in the volumes Stupid, Stupid Rat-Tails and Rose

Books about Warren Buffett[edit]

Numerous books have been written about Warren Buffett and his investment strategies. In October 2008, USA Today reported that there were at least 47 books in print with Buffett's name in the title. The article quoted the CEO of Borders Books, George Jones, as saying that the only other living persons named in as many book titles were U.S. presidents, major world political figures, and the Dalai Lama.[11] Buffett said that his own personal favorite is a collection of his essays called The Essays of Warren Buffett,[12] which he described as "a coherent rearrangement of ideas from my annual report letters" as edited by Larry Cunningham.[11]

Best-selling or otherwise notable books about Buffett include the following:

Ron & Don Show[edit]

Comment: 1. Ratings are not the issue here, notability is. Per WP:Notability_(media)#Programming, a purely local radio show is less likely to be notable than a regional or national one, but the question (as it is for all notability debates) is still "the presence or absence of reliable sources." I'm currently on the fence about whether there is enough such independent coverage of Ron & Don to justify notability. I don't live in Seattle and I have no independent interest in or knowledge about this show. However, these guys seem to have been around a long time and to have worked together in a lot of markets. In addition to the usual routine mentions you'd expect in the Seattle press, Google turns up some newspaper mentions of them getting hired and fired in those other markets. Some of this is at pay sites, so I didn't read those in detail, and it's not a huge number of hits, but there certainly are some. There is a substantial blog post by the TV columnist for the New Orleans Times Picayune, about a remote broadcast these guys did in NOLA last year in connection with some Hurricane Katrina fundraising. It's not clear if they were in the print T-P or not. ("Live from New Orleans: It's Seattle talk radio!" Times-Picayune blog post, April 10, 2008.) Is this enough? I'm not sure.
2. However, the comment above by User:Notabilitypatrol may raise concern that this particular article is an exercise in WP:POINT. User:Notabilitypatrol created this article, but now he/she readily agrees it should be deleted? Is the purpose to tell us about The Ron & Don Show, or to wage a battle against the much more notable (if lower rated) Luke Burbank?
3. By the way, the Google search also turned up a number of uses of "Ron & Don Show" as a nickname for CBC's famous Hockey Night in Canada and its Coach's Corner segment, hosted by Don Cherry and Ron MacLean. But I imagine User:Emarsee knows more about this than I do, eh?Smile.png

Forrest McDonald[edit]

In 1987 the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) selected McDonald for the Jefferson Lecture, the U.S. federal government's highest honor for achievement in the humanities. His lecture was entitled "The Intellectual World of the Founding Fathers."[23] In a New York Times article after his selection, McDonald was quoted as saying that the federal government has "lost its capacity to protect people in life, liberty and property, to provide for the common defense, or to promote the general welfare."[24] However, in interviews and in his Jefferson Lecture, McDonald opposed the idea of a new constitutional convention: in part because he felt that such a convention would become a "runaway" and a "catastrophe";[25] in part because he thought the inefficiency of the American government was a saving virtue limiting its capacity for oppression;[26] and in part because he felt that in modern America it would be impossible to assemble a group as capable as the 55 delegates who attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which took place in an era McDonald called "America's Golden Age, the likes of which we shall not see again." [25]

McDonald's lecture was later described by the noted conservative historian George H. Nash as "a luminous introduction to the intellectual world of the Founding Fathers."[27] However, McDonald faced criticism for not acknowledging the imperfection of slavery in the original constitutional framework. The New York Times pointedly noted that on the same day as McDonald's Jefferson Lecture, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall gave a speech criticizing "complacent belief" in the perfection of the Constitution, given the stain of slavery. The Times quoted McDonald's answer that at the time of the Constitutional Convention, "Slavery was a fact. It had simply not crossed many people's intellectual or moral horizons to question it," and his further comment, "The condition of the French peasants was far worse than that of the American slaves, and that was heaven compared to the Russian serf."[25]

"The Intellectual World of the Founding Fathers" was republished in the essay collection, Requiem: Variations on Eighteenth-Century Themes[28] In a 1994 interview, McDonald noted that at the time he was selected for the Jefferson Lecture, he was on record in favor of abolishing the NEH, so he had refused to accept the $10,000 award that went with the honor. (In the same interview, asked about his political views, McDonald described himself simply as a "conservative"; when the interviewer followed up by asking, "How conservative?" McDonald responded, "Paleo.")[29]

additional for Jesse Thorn article[edit]

Thorn is cited as a podcasting expert in various books on the subject.[30] [31]

extra text for New sincerity[edit]

"In the Russian context, the term new sincerity (novaia iskrennost) was originally used in the early 1990s by poet Dmitry Prigov and literary critic [[Mikhail Epstein, members of the unofficial Soviet artistic community. According to them, new sincerity in this context first appeared in literary and poetic texts around 1990, and was a backlash against the postmodern absurdity and ridicule that dominated the informal culture of the late Soviet and post-Soviet periods marked by the crisis of the Soviet state. Although the aesthetics of new sincerity implies avoidance of cynicism in relation to the subject matter, this does not mean that new sincerity lacks irony. Quite the contrary, as a post-postmodern phenomenon it is acutely self-aware and self-ironic. However, this is a particular brand of irony, which is sympathetic and warm, and allows its authors to remain committed to the ideals that they discuss, while also being somewhat ironic about this commitment." (and in 259n.6 references Susan Sontag's comment that a good writer should "Be serious. By which I meant: never be cynical. And which doesn't preclude being funny." [Citing Sontag as quoted in Jenny Diski, "Seriously Uncool," London Review of Books 29, no.6 (March 22, 2007).][32] "Postconceptualism, or the New Sincerity, is an experiment in resuscitating "fallen," dead languages with a renewed pathos of love, sentimentalitym and enthusiasm. (p.146) [33]

"As early as the second half of the 1980s, Dmitry Prigov, the leader of the Moscow conceptualists, called for a change of direction toward a "new sincerity."[34]

Yurchak connects "aesthetics of new sincerity" to art forms such "as reality television, Internet blogs, diary style chicklit literature, personal videos on You-Tube, neorealist cinema (for example, Danish Dogma, Aki Kaurismaki, Lars von Trier, Pedro Almadovar."[32]

Sinai Temple (Los Angeles, California)[edit]

Stephen S. Wise Temple[edit]

Stephen S. Wise Temple was started in 1964 by Rabbi Isaiah Zeldin and 35 families. In the years since, it has grown to what you see today, a progressive Synagogue that blends Jewish values, ethics, and traditions into a house of worship and community. We are a Reform congregation and are members of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), the umbrella organization for the Reform movement. Now with over 3,000 member families, six rabbis, two cantors, four Schools on three campuses, we are among the largest Reform synagogues in the country."The Road to Today" at

We had to 'daylight' the area [lower the mountain's height] so we took down the mountain 50 feet. We had no place for the dirt. So I invited the University of Judaism, which then was on Sunset Boulevard, to buy the property next door. And we pushed a million cubic yards of dirt onto their hole to make theirs a level piece of property.

John Duncan Forsyth Room at E. W. Marland Mansion official website:
QUOTE: Located in the southwest corner of the artist studio, this room is a tribute to the Master Architect of the Marland Estate, John Duncan Forsyth. In 1925, Forsyth learned that E. W. Marland was going to build a mansion that would reflect his status as an oil baron, so he pursued Marland and convinced the oilman to hire him. Thus began a rich architectural legacy left by Forsyth in Ponca City.
Although he designed many buildings during his career, Forsyth was the most proud of his design of the mansion. Marland gave him carte blanche to create the plans for the "Palace on the Prairie." Forsyth felt very fortunate to hire talented artists to hand paint the ceilings, and he loved being afforded the luxury of using decorative wrought iron and original stone carvings.
In addition to the mansion, Forsyth designed the Artist Studio, the gatehouse, the chauffeur's cottage, the stables, and the administrative building on the Marland Estate. Marland also commissioned him to build a group of Southwest adobe buildings in downtown Ponca City and the boardroom at Marland Oil Company. In the mid-1930's, when Marland was governor, Forsyth designed the state office building in Oklahoma City.
A very popular architect throughout northern Oklahoma, he designed many homes and business buildings in Tulsa and Ponca City, and is also known for the Will Rogers Memorial in Claremore, Oklahoma.ENDQUOTE

For New Sincerity

User:Arxiloxos/New sincerity (draft)

Re critical "new sincerity"--see Collins, Jim. “Genericity in the 90s: Eclectic Irony and the New Sincerity.” Film Theory Goes to the Movies Eds. Jim Collins, Hilary Radner and Ava Preacher Collins. New York: Routledge, 1993. 242-63. ISBN 0415905761, ISBN 9780415905763 in which contrasts films that treat genre conventions with "eclectic irony" and those that treat them seriously, with "new sincerity"; he describes (p. 245)

the 'new sincerity' of films like Field of Dreams (1989), Dances With Wolves (1990), and Hook (1991), all of which depend not on hybridization, but on an "ethnographic" rewriting of the classic genre film that serves as their inspiration, all attempting, using one strategy or another, to recover a lost "purity," which apparently pre-existed even the Golden Age of film genre.

Katy Henriksen, " Drunk Bunnies, The New Sincerity, Flarf: How Blogs are Transforming Poetry," EconoCulture, January 23, 2007 -- describes Anthony Robinson, Andrew Mister, Reb Livingston, Joseph Massey as participants in poetry movement described by Massey as "a ‘new sincerity’ brewing in American poetry -- a contrast to the cold, irony-laden poetry dominating the journals and magazines and new books of poetry."

Sam Cohn[edit]

{{[add template]] | article=Sam Cohn | hook=... that New York talent agent Sam Cohn, who TIME called "the first superagent of the modern age", liked to eat paper? | status=new | author=Bongomatic | nominator=Arxiloxos}} ALT1: ... that New York talent agent Sam Cohn was called both "the first superagent of the modern age" and "the most difficult man in the business to get on the phone"?

A lengthy 1982 profile by Mark Singer in The New Yorker described Cohn's career and personality in detail.[41] Cohn was known for lunching at New York's Russian Tea Room almost every day;[42] his habit of eating paper;[41] and his strong preference for New York over Los Angeles, unusual among major motion picture agents.[43] Cohn was also famously difficult to reach on the phone: his obituaries in the major entertainment trade papers both mentioned that he was "the most difficult man in the business to get on the phone"[43][44], and in his New Yorker profile, Singer repeated an industry joke that Cohn's tombstone would read, "Here lies Sam Cohn. He'll get back to you."[45]

The character Arnold Moss, a paper-eating agent based on Cohn, was created by Nora Ephron and portrayed by Dan Aykroyd in Ephron's 1992 film This Is My Life[46]

Cohn's client list and influence waned in later years,[47] and in 1999 he left his position as the head of ICM's New York office."[48] He remained a member of ICM's board of directors in 2005, and continued to work at ICM until retiring in early 2009.[48] (The Variety article reporting his retirement drily noted, "Hanging onto his trademark ways to the very end, Cohn did not return a call from Daily Variety for comment."[48])

Helmerich Award[edit]

The Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award is a literary award given by the Tulsa Library Trust in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is awarded annually to an "internationally acclaimed" author who has "written a distinguished body of work and made a major contribution to the field of literature and letters." [49][50]

History of the award[edit]

First awarded in 1985 with a cash prize of US$5,000 in 1985, the award now consists of a $40,000 cash prize and an engraved crystal book.[51] To date, all of the award recipients have been English-language writers.[52]

The award is named after Peggy V. Helmerich, a prominent Tulsa philanthropist and library activist,[53] and the wife of Tulsa oilman Walter Helmerich III.[54] Before her marriage, under the stage name Peggy Dow, she had been a motion picture actress,[55] best known for playing the role of "Nurse Kelly" in the 1950 film Harvey opposite James Stewart,[56]; she also starred in the 1951 film Bright Victory.

The first honoree, in 1985, was writer and longtime Saturday Review of Literature editor Norman Cousins, and the theme of the evening was “The Salutary Aspects of Laughter.”[51]

In 1997, historian John Hope Franklin became the first (and so far only) native Oklahoman to receive the award. While in Tulsa to accept the award, Franklin made several appearances to speak about his childhood experiences with racial segregation as well as his father's experiences as a lawyer in the aftermath of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot.[57][58][59]

In 2004 Arthur Miller was initially announced as the honoree[60], but he subsequently declined the award when illness prevented him from attending the award ceremony. David McCullough, the 1995 winner, replaced Miller as the featured speaker at the December 2004 award dinner.[61] McCullough subsequently returned his honorarium to the library.[62] Miller died in February 2005,[63] In 2005, the initial honoree was again unable to accept due to illness: Oklahoma native Tony Hillerman was the initial selection, but was later replaced by John Grisham.[64][65] Reporting on Grisham's selection as Hillerman's replacement, a Virginia newspaper called the Helmerich Award the "[b]est literary award you've never heard of."[66]

The 2009 honoree is Australian journalist and author Geraldine Brooks.[67]
