I don’t really follow what goes on in the world, and I’m not happy about that (just as I am not happy about all the holes in my education).
Part of the problem was I had no news sources that I really trusted. But that’s not true anymore. There’s Rachel Maddow. I feel like I’m the last to know, but she is a godsend. I’m going to start recording her show so that I never miss it. I also like 3QuarksDaily, not a news site per se, but I can get a whole different look at things like what’s going on in Gaza right now. Although for a quick snapshot of what most people don’t know, take a look at this short op-ed. But in addition to pieces written by their own contributors, 3QuarksDaily links to articles I wouldn’t necessarily see and which are frequently worth reading.
