Alissa Walker, of Unbeige, has a piece on Project M in rural Alabama.

Patrick James delivers a feel-good piece about Denise Cramsey, a co-EP of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Clearly, James bought into the “community volunteers coming together” line straight from the ABC press kit.

The best part of the mag is the back-of-the-book Provocations section. The worst part is the visual over kill in the Stimuli section–there’s so much going on, the eye just gazes right off the page and out the window.
