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, Stan of Oh Boy It Never Ends, Ann of Ann's Mega Dub. and Wally of The Daily Jot. Unless otherwise noted, we picked all highlights.

"I Hate The War" -- most requested highlight, C.I. on the latest name change for the Iraq War.

"Iraqi elections and the men who misunderstand them" -- and huge surprise, this almost got enough votes to be the most requested highlight by this site's readers. Surprising because it went up Saturday night. But it is highly popular.

"Operation Bottom Dollar" -- Trina went to DC to report on the FTC press conference that follows up on last week's "Consumer scams (Jess)."

"The Bully & Tony Review" -- Isaiah dips into the archives for this one featuring Bush and Blair.

"those men and their sex scandals," "Didn't believe him" and "Sushi and simple Dave Zirin" -- Rebecca, Marcia and Mike on the spectacle.

"Online privacy" -- We remember raising the issue of online privacy as a community, we remember raising it here, we remember people ignoring it repeatedly. Now some are concerned. Now.

"Those of us who are there have to work harder" and "It says a lot about what kind of people we are" -- Kat and Elaine offer takes on seemingly different topics but we think they offer two bookends.

And we'll note all of Ann's posts from last week:

"Peter Sellers and Claudine Longet throw The Party" & "Away From Her" -- Stan and Betty offer Friday night movie blogging.

"You get one" -- Betty tries to set a marker on repeat offenders. Get caught in a scandal, she argues, and I'll defend you. Repeat and you're on your own.

"nbc's heroes" -- Rebecca catches up on the episodes of Heroes she missed while in London.

"And what does it say about me?" -- A man in a coma could supposedly communicate and allegedly wrote a book. Only it was a fake. Ruth looks at the story and why she wanted to believe it.

"The difference is this writer was White" -- Important post by Marcia.

"Michael Kazin nails A People's History" -- It's never as simple as some work so hard to make it.

"Attacking Bill Delahunt" -- We agree with Mike, this attack on Bill Delahunt really doesn't play.

"THIS JUST IN! UNHAPPY BARRY O!" & "The little prince pouts" -- Wally and Cedric on America's princess.

"Evan Bayh's news" -- Stan processes the news that Evan Bayh will not run for re-election.

"ACLU asks a great question, I've got another" -- Trina does have a question -- a great one.

"They should laugh" -- Ruth on the older set that tries to play Tweeners.

"Thanks, Jackson Browne (for nothing)" -- Talk about "The Pretender."

"Barack overrules/sidesteps Congress" -- Important post by Elaine.

"Some explanations emerge" and "THIS JUST IN! TIRED AND NOT VERY SMART!" -- Barry's gay for pay days. :)
