New content?

"Editorial: Yesterday's protest and the future protests" our thoughts on the protest yesterday (which we were happy to participate in) and where we all needed to be headed. (All includes us.)

"TV Review: Without a Point" written by Ava and C.I. all other features were written as group efforts. They hate it. (They always do.) We disagree. We laughed out loud throughout. We think you will too. (This is a show that I, Jim, have actually seen. I think they captured it perfectly.)

"Music Roundtable" our longest roundtable ever. That's not what delayed the edition though. It was a pleasure, and, again, thanks to Ruth for participating.

"Musings on KPFA's Living Room" continuing to get the word out. This time on a KPFA program entitled Living Room and hosted by Kris Welch.

"Sunday Times at a glance" Dona asked for short pieces. Everyone goes into panic mode. One thing that happened was that we ended up with this overview of the Sunday Times. We think it's one readers will enjoy. A look at the arts, opinion, book and magazine sections.

"Warm welcomes for Bully Boy and Condi" another short piece. (The roundtable is huge.)

"Iraq: Five snapshots show a deadly week" cribbing from C.I. to put the war on the front burner.

"10 most played CDs this week" short piece, just a list of our ten most listened to CD this week.

"Pacifica programming today" heads up, get the word out.

We failed to remember that we were noting a book until after 7:00 a.m. C.I.'s exact words were, "Oh, f__ing sh*t! We forgot the book!" We did and at seven a.m., none of us gave a damn. We'll pick it up next week.

That's what we've got. Hopefully there's something in it to enrage you or make you laugh, make you think or make you scream. Apathy's not what we're going for.

See you next week.

-- Jim, Dona, Ty, Jess, Ava and C.I.

P.S. Ty is on vacation from the e-mails again this week. Secondly, Jess tried to fix a piece last week. A link wiped out a line from the lyric/poem. We'll take a look at it next weekend and try to fix it. This week, we had the same problem in the roundtable (repeatedly) with a link to a MP3. Dona adds typos are here for those who get off on them. Seriously, we're dead tired, we were protesting yesterday, we've been up all night working on this edition. It's now past noon so you're looking at over thirty hours awake. If you feel the need to write about a typo, write yourself.
