A note to our readers

Hey --

So it's actually early, early Monday morning.

For us, that's early.

Let's 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?

Cindy Sheehan gets another truest.
This is another truest for Andre Damon but it may be his first truest of 2016.
Hard to believe the death of a US service member means so little.

Ava and C.I. wrote this last Sunday.

Last Sunday?

There was no edition published last week.

The plan was to publish it.  What happened?
We did this roundtable late Sunday.  Monday, Tom Hayden had passed away.  Some fretted about what was said, would it be disrespectful?  I (Jim) could have cared less.  But some wanted to wait.  Typing this was a nightmare.  By Wednesday morning, we'd all agreed to publish it.  But Ty goes to publish and somehow we lose this and we lose Ava and C.I.'s piece.  With the roundtable, we had the tape and could queue it back up.

I called Ava and C.I. to tell them about losing their TV piece.  "Okay!"  "But . . ." I start.

Only to be greeted with a hang up.

They remembered six things.

They each wrote what they remembered on pieces of paper and tried to reconstruct the now lost piece.  The original piece was longer but what's published is better and sharper.
They wrote this for this edition.  It was actually supposed to be a Clinton edition last week but some of us -- including me -- didn't think that would work.

John Stauber gets it.
Those of us who didn't get it got it this week when Ava and C.I. wrote the piece on Hillary's mess and then dashed off two pig boy pieces.
Short feature.
Ava and C.I. In fact, I'll rework the headline so that's noted.
