Sometimes I follow news sources myself, but mostly I follow links from these well-informed folks:
The Bookworm Room
The Common Room
I thank all these wonderful bloggers for going beyond simply reading the news to doing syntopical analysis. They make me think. I try to give credit where credit is due, but I have been "posting and running" lately (I'm too busy to post but feel like I must say something) and I have a sneaking feeling I haven't always tipped my hat in the direction I ought to have.
