A note to our readers

Hey --

Another Sunday.  First, 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.

What did we come up with?

The truth about Selma is emerging.
Ed Hightower gets a truest. 
It is shocking, the silence on the AUMF from the so-called left and the refusal to cover last Thursday's Congressional hearing on the AUMF.  The silence should not just appall you, it should also inform you as to just who you can trust and just who you can't.

Ava and C.I. cover NBC's controversial mini-series The Slap and, more importantly, the reaction to it.
We'd argue: Probably nothing.
We applaud a member of Congress.

Thank you to read Elsa who e-mailed to inform us we had not done this feature once so far this year.  Our apologies.  We'll try to do it at least once a month.
As Rod Stewart once observed, every picture tells a story.
The Shi'ite militias certainly get applause from the Western press, they just don't tend to get called out for slaughtering civilians in Iraq.

What we listened to.
IPS was one of a tiny handful noting the AUMF last week (a tiny handful on the left).
Repost from Great Britain's Socialist Worker. 
Repost from IAVA.
Press release from Senator Patty Murray's office. 
Mike and the gang wrote this and we thank them for it.

And that's what we came up with.
