A note to our readers

Hey --

We wanted a holiday.

Let's 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?

A TV themed edition.

Alissa Quart gets a truest.
As does Maureen Ryan.
Ava, C.I., Dona and I (Jim) wrote this.  We had stated that the editorial had to be about Iraq but that it didn't have to be about TV.  Ava and C.I. found a way to bring TV in.
Ava and C.I. explore the state of TV.
 All but Ava and C.I. worked on this list.  It looks at the top ten programs for every decade starting with the 1950s.

Ty came up with the idea for this one.  (Again, Ava and C.I. did not work on this.)  We always think list pieces will be easier.  But first comes the listing, then the voting, then the arguing.

Ava and C.I. looked at a piece we wrote ("The 11 worst shows of the last 11 years") and noted we'd forgotten three attempts at a variety show.  So they quickly wrote this piece.
Again, all but Ava and C.I. worked on this one.
And all but Ava and C.I. worked on this one.
Short feature! - Dona always insists.  This is one.
And a repost from Great Britain's SOCIALIST WORKER.
