I know, how exciting can news be? Usually, it's the wrong kind of "exciting"...well, anyway...

I just discovered this news site on the net, and it looks pretty good to me. I read a lot of news, so it means something (to me, anyway) that a news site looks better than the usual run of things.

Inter Press Service News Agency:

Aww, when you said "good news" I thought you meant of the "ten million puppies rescued" "everybody was nice to everybody else today" type :confused:

Sorry to build you up...just to let you down! If it had been that kind of site, I would certainly have used the all-important hyphen that would make matters clear: a good-news site.

Another good news site is at http://www.guardian.co.uk. It's a British news outlet, but it covers world events.

Yes, the Guardian is excellent, as is that other UK daily, The Independent (http://www.independent.co.uk/).

Also good is Direland's blog (http://direland.typepad.com/direland/), which I've often linked to here, in various threads.

Since I'm on a roll (for better or worse), I'll also promote Antiwar.com (http://www.antiwar.com) as one of the most useful and (unfortunately) always relevant news sites, plus I'll finish out with a strong recommend of Cursor (http://cursor.org/), again a really useful distillation of daily news, especially in background matters.

Now...stop me before I post again! Gaaaaaaaaaaa... :sweat:
