Pesky’s comment is:

Oh please: another attempt by a New York magazine to pit one designer against another for getting cover work. I realize it may be fun for some to do this, but it devalues designers once again to become some editor's version of Michael Vick pit bulls.

^^ @Pesky: I have to agree 100%, great comment!

Editors need to worry about spelling mistakes, not imagery IMO...

Re: Will tomorrow's world still need designers?

The singularity is coming, and we're worried about what's going to happen to f-ing graphic design? We have our collective heads so ... SO far up. ;)
