2:35PM - News Services

'Ello, Come to promote some important groups.

yahoonews the Yahoo! general news RSS feed, from many sources (AP, Reuters, ETC)
yahoousnews Yahoo! US news. Like above.
yahootopstories Yahoo! Top Stories.
yahootoprated Yahoo! Top user rated.
yahoopolitics Yahoo!..... wait for it.... politics.
yahooelection Yahoo! Gardening. Sike. It's election stuff.
bbcnewsamerica What does the BBC have to say about us? Pretty straightforward, often nearly unbiased, if a little distant.
bbcnewsworld BBC World News. Gives great angles and stories you don't normally hear more than a blurb about (if anything) on CNN.

FYI, if anyone wants to make feed journals from more Yahoo! feedsites, the list of available ones is Here. There's still entertainment, tech, science, and a bunch of others that might not be on LJ yet.

Also: I'm trying to find out if there's an RSS feed set up for Al Jazeera, the popular Arab-based news service. Largely free of censorship, Al Jazeera has angles on middle eastern and world issues that many in the west are just not exposed to. If I can find one before someone else does, I'll post it here.

Get them, read them, think about them. An informed public is my favorite kind of public.

5:38PM - desperado_rss - Now on the Web!

After 26 years as an email list, Tom Parmenter's Desperado is being reborn as a blog. Pretty much, Tom was blogging before there was a weB to LOG.
As all good blogs should exist on LJ too, I've created desperado_rss
Behind the cut is Tom's History of the listCollapse )
(If any of this is messed up, it's because xJournal overwrote an old (personal) entry with this and I had to go and set things straight...and I may not have caught all of LJ's formatting to tear it back out for the repost. If I notice anything, I'll try to fix it...)

6:59PM - New editorial cartoons: Mike Keefe and Mike Luckovich

Hi folks,

I've set up feeds for some popular semi-daily editorial cartoons:

mike_keefe_feed - Mike Keefe, Denver Post
luckovich_feed - Mike Luckovich, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

They'll be updated daily at approximately 1100 GMT. Enjoy!
