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?

The New Statesman has provided some strong Iraq coverage over the last few weeks.
As noted above.  We wish we could say the same about our own US periodicals.   

Nouri is a thug.  Why is the US government still supporting him?  Why are they still arming him?  There are so many questions that need answering.
Ava and C.I. are going to be at the Academy Awards tonight which is why we're done early.  They told us ahead of time they were only doing one piece and that it would probably be a short one.
To ensure that we finished on time, Dona suggested that we follow their lead.
Ava and C.I. tossed this out as a suggested way to note Curiosity.  Betty covers Curiosity, the Mars Land Rover, at her site.  She tries each week to pitch something and each week it's on the maybe list.  Ava and C.I. pointed that out at the start of the edition and said since tonight is an award show most people will be watching, let's note Curiosity won an award.  Trina was quickly on board and wanted Franco to be the presenter. 
Van Cliburn really needed to be insulted by the State Department last week?  Really?  
Poor Junior, his words come back to bite him in the ass.
Another science piece.   This was really because of the tooth photo.
An Iraq piece.  
A great speech.
War, war, war.  Whatever happened to peace?

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

And that's it, that's all we got this week.  A lot of you are asking for a roundtable and we'll try to fit one in next Sunday.
