A note to our readers

Hey --
Another Sunday.

First up, we thank all who participated this edition which includes 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),
Mike of Mikey Likes It!,
Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz),
Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix,
Ruth of Ruth's Report,
Wally of The Daily Jot,
Trina of Trina's Kitchen,
Stan of Oh Boy It Never Ends,
Isaiah of The World Today Just Nuts,
and Ann of Ann's Mega Dub.

What did we come up with?

Jonathan Turley gets this one.
And Glen Ford, both on the same subject.

We had a larger editorial on this topic. We decide it was too long and clipped it to leave the US out; however, we do feel the US government is responsible for this and may tackle that next week.

Ava and C.I. tackle the 'defenders' who attack when a dogpile exists but say nothing otherwise -- even when rape is repeatedly turned into a joke and sold as a form of love -- yes, Tina Fey and 30 Rock, they're gunning for you.

We haven't done a comic survey piece in awhile. And on the issue of the illustrations this week, we were going for a pastel type effect. We may not have pulled it off but that's the common thread for all the illustrations.

We go back to the kitchen to explore a macaraoni & cheese pizza.

A new piece we've often talked about. We offer a look at the week's funny. You may say, "I get that already." To a degree you do. If a man says something funny, you get it on the Sunday chat & chews and in Entertainment Weekly.

An update on Lynne Steweart.

Michael Ratner and Heidi Boghosian discuss secret grand jury indictments.

A repost from Workers World.

A video post on education.

A press release from the House Veterans Affairs Committee. If you expected a piece on Congress this week, you're out of luck. C.I. was not in the mood for Congress having reported on hearings in 4 snapshots last week.

Mike and the gang wrote this and we thank them for it.

That's it for this week.
