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?

Norman Pollack gets a truest.  It's a first for him here.
Jonathan Turley's had a truest before but not this year.
Do we love to pick on Prashant?  We actually hadn't even thought of him but then a professor at Stanford called to ask C.I. and me (Jim) what the hell we were going to do about Prashant?  What did he mean?  Did we miss Prashant trashing The Lancet study?  Yes, we had.  Prashant, stick to what you know -- surely you know something.  Maybe postage stamps or coin collecting, there's got to be something.

Ava and C.I. tackle The Water Cooler Set -- the failures of the set, the errors of the set and so much more.
Short feature.  We all agreed they were needed this edition.  Dona had loved Wally and Cedric's joint-post about the boardwalk from earlier in the week and went looking through The White House photos to find the perfect shot of the lovers.

We hadn't done one in a while.  We also wanted to be sure that Ann and Cedric -- new parents -- had a chance to participate.  Cedric participated in the editorial and Ann partipated in this feature.  
Dona wanted another short feature and Betty had pushed for Curisoity this edition so that seemed like the best choice.
Ava and C.I. made a crack that I thought was funny and said they should turn into a full feature.  They said they'd do it but only if they could bring in others.  So they brought in Betty, Stan, Isaiah and Elaine.  (They offered it to Marcia but she said she loved Revolution now and if she joined in on this, she'd pick a really bad moment from Revolution.)

We should have done this last edition.  We even talked about it.  We knew the collage would get some questions.  And it did.  This is really just identifying what's in the collage.
From Senator Patty Murray's office.
Repost from Workers World.

Repost from England's Socialist Worker.

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

So that's what we got.  See you next week.
