Giving Thanks

One of the core reasons for creating Fair and Unbalanced was to try to elevate the level of discourse on politics, social justice, the death penalty and other compelling issues of the day.  It soon became clear that I didn't have the time, skill or breadth of knowledge to do this myself.  Luckily, I have been able to draw upon some wonderfully incisive and insightful voices, including friends and cyber-friends, colleagues and collaborators, and a host of others who have generously permitted me to re-post their work or the articles on their sites.  So, to the contributors to the first 1000 posts, my deepest thanks and appreciation for all you do and for letting me share a piece of it.  As you can see, this is quite an impressive list:
Fuzzyone, Marcia Ishii-Eiteman, Lonnie Lazar, Locke Bowman, Robert Reich, Norman Solomon, Robert Borosage Richard (RJ) Eskow, Dave Johnson, Mark Hertsgaard, Peter Miller, David Onek, Eva Paterson, Keith Kamisugi, Reggie Shuford, Timothy Silard, Arcelia Hurtado, Allen Hopper, Steve Bright, Ty Alper, Natasha Minsker, James Clark, Judy Kerr, Stephen Rohde, Richard Dieter, Virginia Sloan, Sasqi (aka Farnaz Fatemi), Paul Skenazy, Dan Siegal, Andrea Lampros, Bob Ostertag, Naomi Klein, Rick Perlstein, Laura Clawson, Laurie Penny, Jeff Pozmantier, Matt Kaiser, Charlie Cray, Christine Meuris, Tom Engelhardt and Tom Dispatch, Anthony Barnett and openDemocracy, Nicole Flatow and American Constitution Society, Jodi Jacobson and Rh Reality Check, Campaign for America's Future, Center for American Progress, and Vast Left. And badly-needed comic relief from Jake Barlow and Randy Medina.
