Public Service Announcement
I know you're stuck in Florida with the endless campaigning, and you don't have cable, so you're stuck with network news, but you DO have the internet, and that makes all the difference. Here is a list of some of my favorite places to go to learn more about what's REALLY going on these days. If you do a bit of surfing, I think you'll find reasons to be more optimistic about Iraq and Afghanistan, more pessimistic about the likelihood that Mr. Kerry would be a positive force in the oval office, and much more skeptical of the "regular" news sources.
- BlackFive has a definite military focus, with lots of news from the men and women who are actually there doing the work, i.e. posts like this.
- Michelle Malkin calls it like she sees it, even when she doesn't agree with the President.
- INDC Journal is INDspensible for fact-checking (almost any post) and the occasional Moonbat report just to keep things in perspective.
- Ann Althouse writes about lots more than just politics. I found her through a link to this post, where she explains how and why she gave up on Kerry.
