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?

We never did the note last week in terms of discussing the articles -- a point a few readers complained about.  Woops.

Mike nominated this one.
And Trina brought this one to the table.
Does it matter if Nouri's gone when the press continues to use his reasoning?
Ava and C.I.  Hmm.  I (Jim) was hoping this would be an Iraq piece.  They told me they were doing entertainment only, that the readers would want that and that they knew what they were doing.  I'm sure they do but would have planned the edition differently had I known earlier.  ("Then you should have asked earlier," Ava just said.)
A new feature will be doing.  And on regular features, next week we'll have a Third Estate Test Kitchen piece.  We were working on that and another piece on books when the ground shook.  Not bad in this area, not like it was in Napa.  But we couldn't pick those pieces back up, the flow was dead.  We'll do them next week.

They were supposed to compliment our music and list focus this edition.  This is on dance music.
This is on disco.  I'll explain the lists in a "Jim's World" next week.
Taylor Swift gets a nod.

What we listened to this week.
Workers World repost.
Socialist Worker repost.
Mike and the gang wrote this and we thank them for it.
