"Eclectic" hardly describes it.
I offer this article as proof that (a) the word is used appropriately, and (b) Walter is a beets.
I don't think the WSJ guy got it right either. (Sorry, just doing my job.)
on the dictionary.com site we've got a fourth definition that has it as an adjective:–noun1. a person who tends to view or represent things as they really are.2. an artist or a writer whose work is characterized by realism.3. Philosophy. an adherent of realism.–adjective4. of or pertaining to realism or to a person who embodies its principles or practices: the realist approach to social ills; realist paintings.I take comfort in knowing, though, that there's a way to read it where Macon is still wrong.
Ooops. Webster's New International Unabridged Second Edition allows adjective use as well. But, Walter, you have a lot to work with, so don't loose heart.
