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?

Michael Hirsh on the Rice debacle.
Bruce A. Dixon. 
How do you miss four days of massive protests in Iraq?

Ava and C.I. cover the 12.12.12 concert.  We took a break before doing the note.  Two have e-mailed to say it's "12-12-12-" and link to Huffington Post.  Actually, check the article, it's 12.12.12.  You'll note that in the screen snap of Brian Williams from the live YouTube broadcast.

We have one more article to go and then we wrap this feature up.  Thanks to Dona and Kat who went through screen snaps to pick the ones for this article.

In a functioning world, The Nation would make this the cover story, Democracy Now would spend the hour on it, CodePink would object to it and various leaders would be calling it out.

The spy community wants to gut the safety net.

We only heard of this while working on the edition.  Dona said we could do it as a short feature so we did.

From Senator Murray's office.

Repost from Workers World.

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