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.

And what did we come up with?
When we can get into Blogger/Blogspot, we'll note it.
As we explain in one article, Blogger/Blogspot has had a problem for nearly three days now.  We can't get into our account to post.  We can log in.  From the log in screen, we're supposed to click "Post" and that's supposed to take us to a screen where we can write.  That's not happening. 
So we've e-mailed our articles to the site and it's going to look a little different.  Dona and Kat are working on illustrations in terms of whether we can use them in e-mails or not.
If you're reading an article in this edition and there is an illustration, it may be smaller than it should be, it may be huge.  When Blogger/Blogspot fixes their problem, we'll try to come in and fix the images.  But we can only do what we can do.
There was talk of all of us working on the illustration issue and trying to collectively fix it.  Since it may not work, even after intense research and playing, we didn't want to sideline the entire crew on this issue.
I (Jim) was fully on board with a 'stripped down' and 'unplugged' edition but I've always felt it was more about text content and Dona's always seen the important of the visual -- both to provide visuals and to break up text.  This is not a new difference but one that pre-dates our marriage and this website. 
 Quickly, here's what we came up with.  We can now get into a post.  Hopefully the problem's fixed but who knows for how long.  I know Isaiah did a comic for The Common Ills -- because we're going to use it for a feature here.  But C.I. didn't upload it.  I've got a call in to Isaiah.  We will add his latest comic when it goes up.  C.I. and a date and Ava and Jess are at the Emmys.  I could text her but I'm sure she's texting about who's winning what and who's wearing what.  So after the Emmys are over, you can check back and hopefully, I'll have gotten ahold of her by then.
See you next week.
