    var $XML = $(data);
    $XML.find("item").each(function() {
      var $this = $(this),

        link:        $this.find("link").text(),
        description: $this.find("description").text(),
        pubDate:     $this.find("pubDate").text()
      var title = item.title;
      var description = item.description;
      var pubDate = item.pubDate;
