My first link is NEWS. I have tried to collect here some immediate links to the NEWS.
|NEW YORK TIMES
The TIMES is an excellent source for up to the minute news. Actually, the electronic edition is better than the print edition. (The print edition is out of date by the time you read it.
I have read the print edition of the NEW YORK TIMES for many years while I was in Detroit and the New York metropolitan area. I actually subscribed to it here in Arlington, Texas. But it was "old" news and piles of print. I have found the internet edition much more useful.
I have just recently added this link to THE DAILY SHOW. I find the Daily Show to be an great source for a lively news presentation. One of my favorite Daily Shows was when Jim Wallis of the Sojourners was on. This can be found on the SPIRITUALITY LINK. Jim tells about his book, "GODS POLITICS, Why the Right get it wrong and the Left does not get it".
I also find the newer shows are fun and interesting.
I have begun reading the ECONOMISTS for a different view of the U.S. and the WORLD. It has great reporting and special reports.
The Washington Post also provides a overview of news, especially education and technology.
Now, the STAR-TELEGRAM, Arlington edition, is a must read. For articles worth saving, I go to this electronic edition. The paper edition has a limited life.
The Christian Science Monitor has a fresh perspective on the news. It is worth looking at.
This is an incredible series of link for PEACE & JUSTICE. Yes, it probably should go back to the SPIRITUALITY LINK, but I do like it here for a quick reference to Fr. John Dear.
This collection of LINKS concerns itself with the decline of the middle class and the Iraq war. These are two very important topics. The decline of the middle class links have been changed and no longer is the video available. I will try and add some timely links. Same with the Iraq war links have also changed. There are other places for Peace & Justice links. Try the SPIRITUALITY LINKS.
WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS (Lou Dobbs) (BOOK TV VIDEO)
Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America (BOOK TV VIDEO)
These links are special interest links for some upcoming community news and LINKS; Help for Teens is a musical video; and UTA school of Social Work human service & Information Technology links.
HELP FOR TEENS (SUBSTANCE ABUSE)
Well, this is a strange collection of links. I had great reasons when I put them up here. Now let me see what those reasons were.
THE MEATRIX Just try it.
