UVA's rugs are so lumpy from all the stuff that has been swept under them, I almost tripped the last time I was at Carrs Hill. Thought Terry was going to get the broom out and clean things up, especially for women, but it hasn't happened. The male-dominated BOV made sure Terry had a huge supply...

@Toni H., absolutely you could say the same thing about those communities. Although that's irrelevant to the discussion because the criticism levied above was against CVL, not Danville, Lynchburg, Denver, etc.

"Why do so many people who could live anywhere in the world choose to live in CVL?" I guess you could make the same argument about Lynchburg or Danville...

Hey Dave, I'm sorry if I sound belittling; that is not my intent. Rather I wish to point out that winning these awards is not the competition that the New Yorker, Atlantic, Nat Geo, et. al. have chosen. They are in a competition for readers and, by that score, VQR is not even on the board.

@ 26 World: Perhaps I missed something, but I don't recall seeing McNair rank on VQR itself anywhere. In any case, best of luck to the replacement staff when it comes along and has to try and re-make the magazine with the residual ill will and decimated funds Genoways leaves behind him. Well, he *...

@Cville Native " UVA should have that type of authority over their students, after all, it is their image at stake." Well it doesn't and it is not the military. No, I was not blaming the victim or her family or his family or their friends, all of whom had more contact with Miss Love than Mr....

26 world, Perhaps you missed this? I've always acknowledged the magazine's worth and reputation. http://www.readthehook.com/79364/hotseat-all-jazzed-genoways-keeps-vqr-s...

Does this mean that The Hook's obsession with Genoways will finally come to an end? I can only hope. By the way, interesting to see McNair finally acknowledging VQR's worth and reputation. I guess Charlottesvillians should be content that year-upon-year of prestigious national magazine award...

Urban Farmer et al are wrong. I've lived in 6 states and have been in the midwest for the last 5 years. UVA has a tremendous reputation. When I tell people where I'm from and where I went to school (UVA), many people comment about what a great school it is, a beautiful place to live, and how...
