This theme of this issue is “Death,” which is always cheerful. There are articles that are literally about death: green burials, the town in Texas where they carry out the death sentences, the ongoing murders in Juarez, Mexico. There are articles on more figurative deaths: the death of a shopping mall, a discussion on dams and their effects on culture. Razorcake contributor Scott Puckett pulls through with an interesting article on various burial options. And, when the death articles get too heavy, there’s an interview with Studs Terkel and an article on McDonalds breaking up unions. Most of the articles are a bit on the academic side, but they are well-researched, and there are so many articles in here that you’re bound to find something you like. –Sean (Clamor, PO Box 20128, Toledo, OH43610)
