A note to our readers

Hey --

Tuesday night.  The 16th anniversary of the start of the never-ending Iraq War.

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, Marcia of SICKOFITRDLZ,
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?

Joseph Wyatt gets a truest.
In fact, he gets two.
In less than an hour, the Iraq War hits the sixteen year mark.  Can you believe it?  We can't either.  When we started this site in 2005, we assumed we'd have ended it long before now but then we also assumed the Iraq War would have ended long before now.
Ava and C.I. cover TV.
Don't forget them, they have really betrayed us and betrayed peace.
Is it our longest roundtable?  It felt that way.  Thank you to everyone who participated, we did it Monday night and we knew it put a lot of people off schedule.  Thank you to everyone.
We limited it to three -- it could have been much, much longer.
This is a topic that we've long planned to cover.

What we listened to.
As always, thank you to Mike & the gang for writing this.

Hey, we love you readers, we really do.  But 16 years from now we better not all be here talking about the 32nd anniversary of the still ongoing Iraq War.

Peace and love to the Iraqi people, peace and love to all non-Iraqis around the world who have fought in the Iraq War or lost loved ones in the Iraq War.  May this war and occupation end and end soon.

As the one and only Melanie Safka sings, till they all come home . . .
