Weekend link dump for April 19

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some May flowers...

This year's Easter art brouhaha. It's always something.

Three interesting explanations for #Amazonfail. And the official explanation, for what it's worth. Finally, an interesting postscript from someone who regrets the outrage that he had helped fan.

What is best in life?

Rick Perry is not Texas. That shouldn't need to be said, but that's how it is these days.

Reality TV is the new last refuge of the scoundrel.

"Left Behind" economics.
