The Week in Review: Waco, Wackos and Wallpaper

Inside Flipboard / April 20, 2013

The horrific bombing attack on the Boston Marathon and subsequent mayhem riveted the nation. The series of events, which unfolded with the pacing of a Hollywood script, actually pushed a fertilizer plant explosion that killed 12 people in West, Texas, near Waco, off the front pages. And yet life goes on. Here are some wonderful magazines our readers created, which have nothing to do with death, destruction and bad news.

Here are a few of our favorites:
