A note to our readers

Hey --

Another Sunday. We're publishing at what's becoming our usual time.

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),
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.

What did we come up with?

  • Helen Thomas. For those unfamiliar with Helen Thomas, make a point to read "Media: Let's Kill Helen" about the press war on Helen Thomas (Ava and C.I. wrote that article).

  • Barney Frank spoke some hard truth last week. It's rare we highlight a politician in truest but it's rare to hear such a true statement.

  • And we go back to Helen.

  • This is our Libyan War piece. Basically, C.I. and I (Jim) through the eight drafts and just pulled some stuff out of each one.

  • Ava and C.I. took on the so-called Twitter town hall. A number of you wanted them to and some of you e-mailed that you were afraid they wouldn't since they'd just covered a Barack press conference the week before. If Barack holds a press conference this week . . . They actually intend to cover it. So let's hope he does because I know what they want to say.

  • Barack's no leader. He swore he needed no on the job training -- possibly because he never intended to do the job? We don't know. We just know he's no leader.

  • Third gang answers your e-mails. And for those who wonder, Kat and Ty did that illustration years ago.

  • We wanted to cover Social Security but didn't want to do another straightforward article so we did a little differently. Barack's gutting the safety net. If you're surprised, you weren't paying attention.

  • Two programs you have to catch this week.

  • A repost from Great Britain's Socialist Worker.

  • A repost from Workers World.

  • Mike and the gang did this. We thank them.
Next week, we plan to do a piece on comic books and hopefully one on who may be using your personal information. That latter is something I'm researching right now and may not pan out.
