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:

Felicity gets this one. 
And in what may be a record, she gets this one as well, grabbing both truests in one week.
Abeer got very little attention when her rapists and her killer stood trial.  Sadly, last week she got even less attention when the man who killed her sister, mother and father and, after he wrapped up the gang-rape of Abeer, killed Abeer as well -- that man, Steven D. Green, he killed himself in prison.  But why write about that when you can attack Woody Allen and, like Maureen Orth, lie and distort.  We should have been done a long time ago.  But one two hour delay arose when Rebecca, in passing, noted Orth's so-called 10 facts.  Ava and especially C.I. hit the roof.  Maureen's facts aren't facts.  But how the gullible like Natalie Russell will lap them up while ignoring a man who plotted the gang-rape of a 14-year-old.

This was the only piece Ava and C.I. planned to write.  It's a strong piece.  It covers Star-Crossed, The Originals, The Following and Almost Human.  It's strong writing and their longterm fans will love it, no question.
Liz Sly gets Tweet of the Week for the second week in a row.
MoveOn really needs to learn to chill.
What we listened to.  And I (Jim) said, "That's not the full list, we listened to three more albums."  Oh, no, I was told, we're going with the first 10 only.  And I was told that's how it's going to be from now on because this is a list piece, it's a quick piece and we're not expanding it beyond ten.  Alirght.
I asked Ava and C.I. to write something on the topic of Piers Morgan losing his show.  They didn't want to but they were tired of a writing edition that never ended.  I had no idea what they'd write, nor did they.  They made a few phone calls and then wrote this.  I'd argue it's great for the Johnny Carson section alone -- especially when they quote him banning Barbra Streisand. 
The writing of this is where Rebecca mentioned the 'facts' Orth had written.  Ava and C.I. hadn't seen that.  They didn't believe it and once they saw it, gloves are coming off.  Next week, there will be one piece, maybe two, addressing the Farrow scandal.  The piece Ava and C.I. have planned will address Mia lies that most people aren't even aware of and that go to just how many lies have been told on this scandal.
To finish out the edition -- and shut it down -- I begged C.I. to let us repost part of one of her Iraq snapshots.  She agreed.
Oliver Stone lets loose about Barack.

Repost from Workers World.

Repost from Britain's Socialist Worker.
Repost from an EU member.
Repost from Etan.

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