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?

Owen Jones got his first truest this week.
And he also got his second. 
The protests build but the international press seems reluctant to note that -- or really to even cover the protests at all.
They thought they'd said it all but the sexism didn't stop and they were forced to return to the topic.  Ava and C.I. write an instant classic.

Jon Schwarz Tweets the embarrassing John Brennan confirmation hearing.

Dona discusses two Congressional hearings with Ruth, Wally, Kat, Ava and C.I.
Norman Solomon worked harder than anyone last week to dispell the lie that Colin Powell didn't lie to the UN.

Paul Bremer got some shoes thrown at him.

Look, I (Jim) wrote a piece all by myself!

We had a Justin Bieber piece planned -- I'm not joking.  It was written, we had the illustration.  But we were too late posting.  (It was about the concert he was doing opposite the Grammys.)  We wondered why we could offer instead and Jess suggested we grab C.I.'s writing about Lynne from one of last week's snapshot and use it.

Repost from Senator Patty Murray's office.
Repost from Workers World.

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

That's it, see you next week.
