I Need Some Help

Other than on occasion, I now get my news online, even on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Sunday is the worst. I went through the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the New York Times in a bit less than hour this morning. Part of my problem is that both papers, and the other sites that I read (LA Times, Washington Post, the Vegas Paper, Creative Loafing, Slate, CNN, Google News, NPR) all “print” at various times and I’ve seen what they have to say before my traditional, what used to be a couple of hours of reading on a Sunday morning. I think that was a sentence.

I could rage about the fact that the AJC is for the most part a reprint of AP and NYTimes stories; but, I won’t.

So, let me know what I can add to the Favorites/Newspaper part of my computer.

Thank you.

I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but I have bookmarked Newslink, which will get you to just about any major newspaper in the world with a couple of clicks.

I'd recommend a couple of foreign newspapers to get an international perspective. I have the Guardian bookmarked, but there are a number of other good reads out there if that paper is too far left for your tastes.

Have you looked at Google News?

You can set up sections with key words, and it brings back appropriate stories from hundreds of different sources.

The style section of the NYT. You don't want to chance wearing those hideous suits w/shorts do you?

Oh, you HAVE one of those suits? I bet you look so handsome ummm-hummm.

I'm still going back and forth on whether or not to renew my AJC subscription. Economically, it makes no sense for me, since I can read it all online for free before it ever hits my driveway. On the other hand, I can certainly afford to keep home delivery. And there is a nagging sense of an industry dying and I somehow don't want to put another nail in the coffin. Plus I like to physically hold the paper and read the old fashioned way.

What to do? What to do? ....
