A note to our readers

Hey --

Oh look, we just got in on a 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.

And what did we come up with?

Another truest for Glen Ford. 
Another truest for who we hope will be the Green Party's 2016 presidential candidate.
Iraq -- the topic no one wants to discuss.
Ava and C.I. take on NBC's THE PLAYER and Netflix's MASTER OF NONE.  For the record, I (Jim) love THE PLAYER.
Yes, we make mistakes.  Here's one: IN THE SPIRIT should have been named number one two weeks ago in our piece on feminist films of the 90s.  Our apologies.  (And mine for refusing to listen when C.I. said -- at the time we were writing the piece -- that IN THE SPIRIT was a 90s film.)
Gloria Steinem's been 'leader' for about forty years too long.
Do not waste your money on this book.  It's wretched and boring.

What we listened to while writing. 
Press release from Senator Patty Murray's office.
Press release from the Select House Committee on Benghazi.

Press release from Senator Tammy Baldwin's office. 
Press release from Senator Johnny Isakson's office (he is the Chair of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee). 
Press release from Senator Tammy Baldwin's office.

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

And that's what we came up with this week.

And managed to avoid posting on a Monday in the process!
