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 another truest. 
As does Bruce Dixon.
Our Iraq piece this week. 
Half-way into writing this piece, Ava and C.I. stopped and asked me (Jim) how long they could go?  This is a big story and they had so much on the topic.  I told them I'd help edit if needede but to go long.  They did and I said it didn't need to lose a word.  This is the sort of reporting they do from time to time.  I wish they'd do it all the time and stated that again when I got done reading this.  They said if they did it more often, no one would take their calls.  :D  But they have done it again and it's the most important journalism done on Michael J. Fox's return to sitcoms.  And that's especially amazing if you think of all the press that bad show's gotten.

We look back at some of the week's funniest moments.

Our other Iraq feature. 
A woman fawns over the (bad) wig of a 77-year-old man? 
When our feature became so popular another website was stealing it, we knew we needed to do this feature more often.
With Ava and C.I. going long, Dona wanted us to focus on short features.

Repost from Workers World. 
Repost from Socialist Worker.
Repost from UNICEF.

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