A note to our readers

Hey --

Another 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),
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 politician.  We do try to avoid awarding to politicians.

This was the planned editorial and we did it early on.  Why so short? That was the plan.  Not a lot of words, just the main point.  The hope is that if the press still refuses on the 1st to offer anything but the official figures from Nouri's ministries, that people will be aware other counts existed and they were higher counts but the press ignored them.

I (Jim) would have thought up a better title to Ava and C.I.'s piece if I had more time.  I didn't.  We were talking about another piece and how we'd regroup tonight to write that last article when Ava and C.I. said no.  They said Vanessa Redgrave is on Political Animals tonight and this needs to go up before that show comes on.  So we're posting early for us.

We grade the political websites of the presidential candidates.

A political roundtable.

We had e-mails from people arguing we'd dropped the feature.  No, we just hadn't done it in a few weeks (in part due to the fiction edition last week).

Reader Lauren asked for this one.
Green Party.

Workers World repost.

Mike and the gang wrote this.
