This piece is written by Rebecca of Sex and Politics and Screeds and Attitude, Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix, Kat of Kat's Korner, Betty of Thomas Friedman is a Great Man, Mike of Mikey Likes It!, Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz, Ruth of Ruth's Report, Marcia of SICKOFITRADLZ and Wally of The Daily Jot. Unless otherwise noted, we picked all highlights.

"The sock puppet master calls" -- Betty was able to create a chapter when she didn't think she could. Due to crap pulled on this community (this community didn't start it), it was not a 'fun' weekend. Betty found a way to work through it with a chapter that's a readers' favorite and one of our own.

"What Elaine said" -- Trina echoed Elaine and, judging by the report on e-mails from Ty, a lot of you are echoing Elaine as well.

"I don't support the War Resisters Support Campaign..." -- Elaine's post. Mike giving the backstory here, Elaine spent forever transcribing the interviews. She originally planned to do a series of summary paragraphs based on her interviews on background but she didn't have the time. It's a powerful post and we love it too.

"Laura Kaminker: Her own little fan club" -- Marcia offers much needed media criticism.

"Denver and bust" & "THIS JUST IN! THE DENVER SUICIDE PACT!" -- Cedric and Wally call the travesty in Denver.

"Taxi ride" -- Kat's very well written post.

"Gutter Trash Is a Damn Liar" -- Mike responding to a year-old e-mail being posted last week without his permission and the claim that the e-mails posted represented the full exchange. All Mike sent was one e-mail. Gutter Trash e-mailed him non-stop and he didn't know until he saw them in "Spam." He ignored them. But they were sent and Gutter Trash is a Damn Letter.

"chatty e-mail" -- Rebecca's post which proves Gutter Trash is a damn liar. This went up Monday. "Ned-ette" is Gutter Trash. Back when Gutter Trash was (unknown to us) playing dumb on who Rebecca and Mike were, Rebecca was reminding her readers of the creep who wrote her. Rebecca points out that her readers know all about Gutter Trash from 2007 when the idiot wouldn't stop e-mailing her and Rebecca would blog about the psycho (without naming Gutter Trash or posting Gutter Trash's e-mails). Her readers have e-mailed her non-stop all weekend with various posts from 2007 where Rebecca was addressing one e-mail after another from Gutter Trash.

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Change You Can Believe In" -- Went up last Sunday and documents the Dem ticket. Very funny.

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Softer Side of Narcissism" -- Went up Tuesday morning. Isaiah did not intend to take the weekend off. He's so upset by the news about C.I. and so sickened by Gutter Trash's actions, he can't think right now. But he asked us to inform that whenever he can calm down, Gutter Trash will most likely be his next comic.

"Eleanor's Smear" -- One of the three most requested pieces. (See note at end.) It's a masterpiece. C.I. wrote it.

"Naomi Wolf," "Kate Michelman," "Rachel Maddow," "Laura Flanders" and "ellie smeal, katha pollitt and red betty " -- Ruth, Kat, Marcia, Mike, Elaine and Rebecca doing Wednesday's theme posts.

Note that if there was something C.I. or Ava wrote last weekend beginning Thursday evening you wanted highlighted, we weren't ignoring you. Ava and C.I. asked that those things not be highlighted.
