A note to our readers

Hey --

Tuesday.  We barely made it.

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?

Jimmy Carter gets a truest.
As does Michael Weiss.
Betty and C.I. brought this idea in and we worked it out.  We're not calling it an editorial.
Ava and C.I. examine DYNASTY.  Now this was done on Sunday and among the loudest voices about not wanting to get together on Monday were those two.  
But if we'd published on Sunday, we would be missing some features.  Including this one.  Ava and C.I. called me Tuesday afternoon when they were in a bookstore.  And one of them saw the Ann Powers book. They assumed it was a collection of Ann's previously published music criticism.  So they thought they could cover that and give it a rave.  Then they saw it was Ann attempting to write a book.  And then they realized how awful the book was.  At that point, there was talk of ignoring it.  (I, Jim, just listened throughout all of this.)  But then they said, "Where in feminism does it say we have to give a bad book a pass?"  Fortunately for our readers, it doesn't say that anywhere.  So Ava and C.I. take on the Ann Powers book.
We're trying to do more list pieces as so many of you have requested.
Diana Ross.
Who, November 19th, will be awarded and acknowledged in the ABC broadcast of THE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS.

What we listened to.
A press release from Senator Johnny Iskason's office.
An important post by someone telling truth.
A press release from IAVA.
Mike and the gang wrote this and we thank them for it.

See you next week.
