Sniff...sniff... there were a lot of sighs and angry words around the Roundtable when we chatted about the closing of Southern Accents Magazine. Class and originality is slowly sifting out of the shelter magazine rack and folks we've been lucky enough to get to know - such as the kind and, yes, gracious Miss Southern Living herself Karen Carroll - are being personally affected. Jobs lost, lives upturned. It's just numbers for some, but it's personal for the rest of us - from the readers who wait by their mailboxes to the designers, architects, artists and photographers whose work has graced these pages, to the staffs who put their heart and soul into each publication. Requiescat in pace - Southern Accents.
