Farewell, Fine Feathered Friend

Flamingo lovers across the country are mourning. As of November 1, Union Products, Inc., the (surprisingly) New England manufacturers of the pink plastic lawn ornaments that define kitsch, has closed its factory doors due to rising production costs. Every year, for 49 years, Union Products turned out a quarter million of the leggy birds. For more information, try this article from the St. Petersburg Times, or this short history of the
