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?

Debra Sweet talking truth about activism.
WSWS remains the only periodical to tell the truth about the so-called 'fiscal cliff.' 

Our Iraq piece is about how an institution that's supposed to stand for the people but didn't.
I (Jim) loved this piece the minute I read it but had no idea what to title it.  Jess and Elaine suggested I work Grand Guignol into the title and then it wrote itself.

After Jill Stein's ridiculous campaign (the last six weeks), do not expect this site to endorse a Green Party presidential candidate in 2016 if we're still around then. 

Dona wanted to do a feature on a broadcast of Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox.  She decided to roundtable with all that had listened.

Bernie buys into the 'fiscal cliff' -- he's so useless.

The long promised Dona feature.  With a crappy illustration.  See, for two weeks that was the best we could get.  But Ty and I were with Dona at the grocery store when she noticed that and we took pictures with our phones too.  When we finally checked the ones on our memory sticks, ours were even worse.  I told Dona she could wait but she pointed out two 'notes to the reader' have mentioned a dairy story and if a third edition mentioned it but didn't offer it it would become a running gag.

We were silent on the Kevin Cash thing until he paid off the accuser.

We repost C.I.'s brilliant critique.

A repost from Workers World.

This is a press release from Senator Murray's office.

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

 See you next week.
