And what did we come up with?

Bill Van Auken of WSWS..
Matt Stoller writing at Salon.

Last week an Iraqi journalism organization announced that a reporter was stabbed to death in Baghdad while attempting to cover the LGBT issue and women being arrested for prostitution.  The American journalism organizations that pretend to be 'international' still haven't noted the death.

Ava and C.I. were going to write a short one, we were told.  No politics, we were told.  They lived up to it which will please many of their most loyal readers.    No promises about next week, though.  This is also one of 3 Ava and C.I. pieces this edition and one of 2 that are new.

Screen snaps were done during the debate by Ava and C.I. and they thought this might be something to bring over for a visual and one of Dona's beloved short features.  It certainly works.

We cover politics and Joan Crawford.  No, seriously.

This is the second new article Ava and C.I. wrote for this edition.  Before Joan Crawford had even heard of Bette Davis, she was tangling with Mary Pickford.  It's a detail that explains why Pickford crashed and burned in 1929 but it's a detail her biographers tend to skip.

If only mtracy9 knew what s/he thought s/he did about Iraq.

Earned votes and stolen votes.  They are not the same thing.  Mike noted Ava and C.I.'s language on this issue and the roundtable and we all agreed after that this was an article we should write.

The third Ava and C.I. feature.  A repost.  They wrote this the morning after last week's debate.

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

 See you next week.
