As if the web wasn’t already sucking up enough of my time —
My heroes at Powerline have created a news page. It contains breaking news, summaries of a few conservative blogs, and a cool world map at the top that you can use to link to the home pages of various newspapers.

No “Theocracy” Looming

Saturday, May 21st, 2005

Today’s Citizen-Times does not disappoint. We have another front page story […]
