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?

Reuters noting that the Iraqi government reports an undercount.
Glen Ford calling out the faux progressive.
Our Iraq piece this edition.
If you don't get the title I (Jim) gave to Ava and C.I.'s piece, you must not know your Janet Jackson.  Go listen to "What Have You Done For Me Lately."  They're covering One Life To Live which started back up last week online (and on TV in Canada) after getting the axe from ABC some time ago.
We roundtable on Guantanamo, Iraq, Pritzker and TV.
Isaiah's editorial cartoon featuring a drawing of Nouri's ass is offensive and must be restricted, according to Flickr?  Have they seen what's up at their own site?
Ava and C.I. tackle sexism -- in part because it was needed and in part because they wanted the edition finished early. 
A short piece. 
Repost from Workers World.
ETAN calls attention.

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

That's what we came up with on time.  We had two more features that another hour (I believe) would have made them postable but the rest of the gang says it's time to call it a 'night' and get some sleep.


-- Jim, Dona, Ty, Jess, Ava and C.I.

Added: Ann calls out Women's Media Center and Lauren War ...

Ann's just got added to the list of pieces.
