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?

So a brand new person for a truest.  Those who complain it's always the same people should be especially glad this week.
Glen Ford also gets a truest.
If you saw this when it first went up, the long title had a different title.  The t-word was not supposed to be in the headline.  C.I. had requested that.  I came up with a working title using the t-word and promised to change it.  I forgot and it posted with the original and C.I. saying, "I didn't agree on that word!"  It's fixed on that now.

Ava and C.I. take on the shallow and sick NPR.  They really need to get a handle on their problems real damn quick because no one needs 'cooking' or 'boozing' segments from NPR.  In fact, when CNN offered cooking segments, there was outrage.  Why is no one outraged outraged by NPR's nonsense?

We needed an Iraq piece but we also needed to go to sleep.  (We haven't yet!!!) Ava said she'd do a dialogue piece and rounded up volunteers.  This really turned out well.  Everyone did a good job.

'Experts,' NPR, need to know what they're talking about.  The clown NPR brought on to call whistle-blower Ed Snowden a liar last week?  She didn't know what the hell she was talking about.
Dona did another of her Report on Congress features.  You'll note this one is very different than they usually are.  It also led to my scrapping the editorial we thought we were running and us re-writing it.

Senator Mark Udall.

I moderate a roundtable because the e-mails keep asking when we're going to do another one.
We really liked the truest this week and we also liked his list of the scandals.
C.I. argued for this. There wasn't any real objection.  We're reposting Betty's review of the new Superman film.  Those of us who saw it already (including me) think it sucks.
Repost from Workers World.

Senator Patty Murray and Senator Kelly Ayotte's bill.

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