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?

A group of hackers called out Nouri al-Maliki.
Human Rights Watch explains what's taking place in Iraq.
How the press loves to ignore Iraq except when they can slam the Iraqi people.

Ava and C.I. take on the last hour of Tina Fey's awful show.
Nadir is not just a victim of Nouri's Iraq, he's a symbol of how the press is treated.
Ava and C.I. agreed to take on Superbowl ads.  The deal was they'd watch them all and then try to string together something around them.  They cover 17 of the commercials.  That's one more than half the ones that aired.
Again, Nouri has declared war on a free press.

Dona discusses the Hagel confirmation hearing with Ruth, Wally, Kat, Ava and C.I. who attended it last week.
We should start with the elected officials.
Ava and C.I. offer three articles this week including a look at the new series House of Cards.  This was the only piece they planned to write, by the way.  I (Jim) asked them for the other two.

Senator Patty Murray.

Workers World repost.

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

 That's it, see you next week.
