A note to our readers

Hey --

Well we made it on a Sunday.

First, 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.

What did we come up with?

One for David Z of The Baltimore Sun.
And another for Francis A. Boyle.
And another for Glen Ford.
The silence on what happened to Ned Parker is deafening and alarming.  More troubling are the attempts by The Huffington Post to excuse it away and mock Parker.
Ava and C.I. did another masterpiece. A lot of you enjoyed their recent straightforward TV pieces (such as "TV: The failures of The Flash" and "TV: Netflix gears up to explode the limits of the ...").  But last week's report "TV: The rise of Netflix, the fall of Hulu" was huge and it seemed like everyone read it.  This week they had promised to grab The Messengers (promised a CW friend).  They watched and said they'd be lucky to have five paragraphs but Raed Jarrar had been on Cindy Sheehan's podcast and they could mix that in.  I (Jim) asked them about The CW's season so far which led them to reveal the latest on the ratings challenged Jane The Virgin and I told them they had to include that.  And they did.  So you've got one of those epic pieces that sort of becomes a collage or a tapestry.  
This is appalling.
Hulu e-mailed very unhappy over Ava and C.I.'s "TV: The rise of Netflix, the fall of Hulu" and this is my response.
Covering a Thursday DC event.
What we listened to.
Repost from Great Britain's Socialist Worker.
Repost of press statement from two US senators.

IAVA repost.

And that's what we have.
