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:

Senator Gillibrand's remarks should have been everywhere.  Instead, it was pretty much just National Journal.
Margaret Kimberley gets a Truest as well.
We were at a loss for an editorial.  In part because I (Jim) was running out the clock thinking it would force Ava and C.I. to agree to do one more article this edition.  They wouldn't budge.  They plan to write it next week.  In the meantime, we decided the photo of Ben Affleck, John Kerry and Russ Feingold needed to be included and went with an editorial to John Kerry.
Ava and C.I. felt this was all they had to do.  And they do have a point.  This covers a great deal: an Oliver Stone interview, Randi Rhodes, Rachel Maddow's bad 'special' and Saturday Night Live as well as Democracy Now! and they could have done more.  This is the big piece for the edition.

Dona moderated a discussion on Congress and veterans.  
Short pieces!!!  Yes, we love them.
I thought a poll was needed.  This was one of the biggest monkey wrenches.  Here's what happens next week when the poll closes.  I take a screen snap and we delete it. The poll is on the side of the page as well as in this post.  I worked for hours trying to get it to disappear on the side.  I had Dona work on it, C.I. and Ty, Jess, Wally . . . We had no luck at all.  

What we listened to.
Liz Phair gets it this week. 
Really, the lead singer did look like Alec Baldwin as a blond.

This should be a big, huge story everywhere.

Jake Tapper's The Lead (CNN).
Statement from Senator Kirstin Gillibrand's office. 
UK Socialist Worker repost.

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