Carnival of the Vanities, 92d Edition - A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Welcome to the 92nd edition of the Carnival of the Vanities. Please accept my deepest apologies for being a day late. I'll only offer that sometimes real life collides with blogging at the most inopportune times. In any event, this is the SSG's second Carnival and I hope to host the 144th edition at the same time next year. As is my tradition when the Carnival comes down South, there is always a contest. This year the contests consists of naming famous persons from from Arkansas. Winner gets a prize from the SSG shop. Email me or post your answers and trackback to this entry. With no further adieu, Here comes the Carnival!
