A note to our readers

Hey --

Another late Sunday.

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.

And what did we come up with?

First, what don't we have?

A book.

We forgot all about it until we were wrapping up. There are two books we know we will be picking. One was put out by the Center for Constitutional Rights. Wally said let's just do that and I said I thought it was a post that, even if brief, would need more then a few rushed minutes. I then proposed a book we've all agreed on by an actress and Elaine said, "Oh, hell no! We're not rushing through her important book. Let's just not do one this week." So that's what we went with. There will be one next week.

What we offer this week:
James Denselow wrote an important column, make a point to check it out.

Denselow we knew of. This was our first time encountering Rafe Pilgrim.

And if you doubt that assertion, look at the proof. American journalist arrested in Iraq and the US press ignores it. DoD announces 3 deaths in the Iraq War last week and US press ignores it. Over and over, the US press ignores Iraq. The illustration is by Betty's kids.

This was a requested piece. Ava and C.I. aren't sure what they're covering next Sunday. But they encourage you to watch Revenge on ABC Wednesday nights. This week, they take on NPR and the pledge drive that left a lot of listeners feeling like unwanted johns.

We had to bring it back. Read it and see why.

Cindy Sheehan and Chris Floyd talk Iraq realities.

A short feature. We had already started posting and I said that if I had a photo of candy, I'd make this a piece and not something to mention in "A note to our readers." C.I. found the candy picture and this was quickly written.

Oh, he's just so pathetic.
I explain just how pathetic Dumptruck is.

Repost from Workers World.
Important news regarding burn pits.

Mike and the gang wrote this and we thank them for it.
