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.

We thank them all. This was the second Sunday we were all together in California so we probably should have done a roundtable.  But we didn't.  What did we come up with?

We believe this is Eric London's first truest.  Marcia nominated him.
Jason Ditz has been a truest before.  Kat nominated this one.
What will Nouri do now as all eyes look everywhere but Iraq?

Ava and C.I. took the hard piece, the heavy lifting.  At one point, they had a Comedy Central show also in this review and it was hilarious.  But as everyone laughed hard while I (Jim) read it out loud, they made the decision to pull everything that wasn't about Syria.  This is a really strong piece.  
A short feature.
At the request of the readers, we return to the kitchen.

The text?  Probably worth nothing.  But Ava and C.I. got three public domain photos (the last three in the piece) from the Library of Congress of Dietrich and we wanted to use them before we forgot.
In Style.  Other than The New York Times, it may be our most picked upon publication at this site.
Today you get in free.

Workers World repost.
Senate Veterans Affairs Committee notice, plus (in italics) C.I.

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