A note to our readers

Hey --

Sunday night here in California.  Monday morning on the east coast.

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?

Margaret Kimberley gets another truest.
DISSIDENT VOICE gets a truest.
The protests continue in Iraq -- as do the attacks on the protesters.
Ava and C.I. cover a lot: Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley and the CMA special as well as Joe Biden and THE MOODYS.
Another roundtable on a number of topics.
Book coverage in the community.

Next up?  Four pieces on music.  A groundrule: Each decade an artist only gets one album on the list.  Sorry.  Elaine pointed out that, for the sixties, she'd be voting every Beatles album ever.  It made sense to limit to one an artist for each decade.  Second, these are our picks.  Disagree?  Great.  You should have heard all the yelling and arguing we went through to come up with these lists.  Third, we didn't do this decade.  It has 22 days left in it and we didn't want to jump the gun.  Here are our five music pieces:

This actually inspired us to do the five pieces on essential albums.
