A note to our readers

Hey --

This is very early for us!

Thank you to all who worked on 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),
Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix,
Mike of Mikey Likes It!,
Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz),
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?

This is Daniel Ellsberg.
And that is Lt Col Dan Choi. Originally this was going to be a political edition in terms of campaigns. Then it was going to be an edition about Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Then it becamse a mixture of a number of things.

Of course the editorial had to be on WikiLeaks. It is the story right now in the news cycle.

And Ava and C.I. covered it here by looking at the way the network news reported it. They do two pieces this edition and swear they hate this one the most. (They hate everything they write.)

We do discuss Don't Ask, Don't Tell here. I'm glad for that because we had an article and had to scrap it. Ty's going to try to do a Ty's Corner on the topic next Sunday. But we're too tired to keep working on that group article that just won't work.
This is the one Ava and C.I. "dislike less" of their two pieces. We love both articles and are glad to have both. We'll also note that Ava and C.I. worked WikiLeaks into this one as well. So that's three pieces addressing WikiLeaks this week.

Dallas came up with this idea. The first plan last week was for this to be a campaign edition. And Dallas had these wacky pieces sent to him by the Texas Democratic Party committee.

This is a comedy feature. We hope you enjoy it.

La Pietra is running for office. Find out what he stands for.

Elaine, Mike, Rebecca, Betty, Ruth, Marcia, Stan, Ann, Cedric and Wally wrote this and we thank them for it.

We thank everyone. And that includes you for reading. Our e-mail address is
