A note to our readers

Hey --

As usual the delay was . . . Flickr. We thank everyone who participated in the writing of this edition which is Dallas and the following:

The Third Estate Sunday Review's Jim, Dona, Ty, Jess, and Ava,
Rebecca of Sex and Politics and Screeds and Attitude,
Betty of Thomas Friedman Is a Great Man,
C.I. of The Common Ills and The Third Estate Sunday Review,
Kat of Kat's Korner (of The Common Ills),
Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix,
Mike of Mikey Likes It!,
Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz),
Trina of Trina's Kitchen,
Ruth of Ruth's Report,
Wally of The Daily Jot,
Isaiah of The World Today Just Nuts,
Stan of Oh Boy It Never Ends
and Ann of Ann's Mega Dub.

What did we come up with?

Truest statement of the week -- Adam Kokesh was a natural.

Truest statement of the week II -- We'd wanted to address this in a feature article. Time ran out so we went with it as a truest.

Editorial: The silence said a great deal -- Did you catch Amy Goodman's hour on the assault on the press in Iraq last week? No? Maybe because it never aired, maybe because like so many others in the press, she ignored the story.

TV: The nightly talk shows -- Ava and C.I. tackle NBC's talk shows.

Comics and the wars -- We have other illustrations for this but we're tried of waiting on Flickr to finally upload. So we're using an older illustration and calling it a 'night'. This is the piece Isaiah worked on and we thank him for that.

The Nation endorses and amplifies sexism -- Ava and C.I. brought this one over and we liked it because it was a visual feature and because it bothered us that we hadn't learned about it already online.

Mailbag (Dona) -- For weeks, Dona has been planning to write an update on smoking (on quitting smoking) because so many readers e-mail with questions and comments. We needed another piece and there were some bits and pieces she could add at the end so she contributed this.

Bitches for Barack (Ava and C.I.) -- Ava and C.I. wrote this and we thank them for it.

The Bronze Boob goes to . . . -- We all agreed John Nichols had yet again earned big fool bragging rights.

Iraq -- Our Iraq feature.

ETAN calls for dialogue -- ETAN alert.

Highlights -- Mike, Elaine, Wally, Marcia, Betty, Cedric, Ann, Kat, Ruth and Rebecca wrote this and we thank them for it.

And that's it. Sorry this is such a lame note but I (Jim) am tired. We've been working on this edition forever.

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