'Extreme Makeover': 'Statesman' Edition

'EM:HE.' If you know what those letters stand for, you've got more problems than I thought.

While over at the Austinist, they're of mixed minds about the whole Extreme Makeover: Home Edition phenom, we're even less conflicted: Catching week-before-last's dry-hump of a 9/11 responder's grief made us want to retch a little - and we're pretty sure it wasn't the subpar pizza at the buffet playing the show.

Well, the Statesman's also got their mind made up - devoting not one, but two articles about the show - including an essay from the winning family.

As goes the Life and Arts section, so goes the world.
