Good poetry, good prose, a lot of good articles, a video -- and a cool painting, too. Not to mention a three-part exploration of what Sky Mall can do for your backyard -- and for your neighbors.

Kathy Richards, the incomparable @katdish, posted a three-part series on statues you can buy from Sky Mall to decorate your backyard and, well, offend your new neighbors (and that's the point; you have to read it). Part 1 is the African Safari. Part 2 is the Garden of Tolerance and Diversity. And Part 3 is -- Zombies! And the best part of all of this -- she's not making this up; you really can buy this stuff.
