We (Mike, Rebecca, Kat, Wally, Cedric and Betty) have picked out the followings as the must reads from last week.

"2006: The Year of Living Dumbly (Year in Review)" -- C.I. calls it and you will be agree and you will laugh. This is the thing to bookmark and come back to throughout the year to see if the media's improved any.

"2006 in books (Martha & Shirley)" -- Martha and Shirley say writing was easy, it was tabulating all the votes that was hard.

"Kat's Korner: 2006 in music" -- Kat looks back at 2006 in music.

"The truth emerges from his fat mouth" -- you've waited for the answers, you've wondered how Betinna ended up with Thomas Friedman. There have been hints throughout, now find out the answer.

"Guns and Butter, Norman Solomon, et al" -- Kat always says she's just going to do short posts at her site but every now and then, she's got a lot to get off her chest. This was our favorite of last week.

"Ham and Potato Casserole in the Kitchen" -- Trina (Mike says "Ma") gives you a recipe (which Mike says really is good) and also takes a look at 2006 where she salutes the women who made a difference and notes one who was AWOL in 2006.

Wally's "THIS JUST IN! THE DUCK AND COVER BULLY BOY!" and Cedric's "Coward-in-chief" -- the joint-post men are at it again -- finding the cowardice that lurks deep within the Bully Boy and on the surface as well!

"dear democracy now" -- Amy Goodman asked for feedback this week and Rebecca gives her some.

"Correction to Barbara Ehrenreich on Democracy Now! today" -- Dona and Trina both said that this post had to be noted. Ehrenreich wanted to talk about Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda and GreenStone Media. Too bad she didn't bother to find out any facts before speaking. Too bad Amy Goodman and company either thought it was too cute for words or didn't grasp how off the mark Ehrenreich was.

Cedric's "Bully Boy hopes to hope it away" and Wally's "THIS JUST IN! BULLY BOY'S REAL PLAN!" -- those joint-post men just don't let up on the Bully Boy -- too bad more Americans aren't as tenacious.

"The Ford & Brown blather" -- Cedric demanded this post both because of Ford and because of James Brown who, Cedric says, should have died with the sixties "before he could destroy his own reputation."

"Big grab bag post" -- we need to add one more name to the top. We were trying to decide which of Mike's posts to go with and Flyboy popped into the discussion to say, "Grab bag, it's obvious." :D

"NYT: In The Garden of Judith and Miller" -- C.I. notes there's a new Judith in town.
