Saturday Good Reads


Many of the posts this week are about Easter, and there are some really wonderful things in prose, poetry, art and photographs. And there was humor, too: Matt Appling, a self-confessed global warming agnostic, offered some suggestions on how to celebrate Earth Day, while T-Mobile did a video spoof of the royal wedding.
