Beginning my day I always scan the headlines to see what has happened - overnight or abroad.
My most read sources for all types of information include:
MSNBC.com - U.S. and world news
WSJ.com - U.S. and world news
NPR.com - Hourly news summaries and world news
Telegraph.co.uk - Daily Telegraph, London newspaper site for UK and London news
BBC.com - World news
Pal-Item.com - Local News
Thestarpress.com - Muncie local news
Redlegnation.com - Cincinnati Reds news and comment
The Lot D - C. Trent Rosecrans Cincinnati sports blog
mlbtraderumors.com - baseball transaction news site
And that is just in one sitting. I often look at all types of sources for news but do not rely much on the information of blogs unless it is a blog that has broken a huge story.
Today I awoke to see that Barack Obama may have to give up his trusty BlackBerry.
And speaking of president-elect Obama, Catholics may have to repent if they voted for him.
The Onion reports the Obama win may have caused a massive void in Obama's most ardent supporters.
The Washington Post takes a look at The Onion and how it came to be what it is.
The Chicago Tribune takes a look at the revival of live albums. I don't know, I've never been a huge fan, but there are a couple I have listened to religiously. Thanks to C. Trent for the heads up. This one, this one and this one I have listened to a lot.
Albert Pujols won the NL MVP. He deserved it hands down. I'm surprised Kosuke Fukodome didn't win though.
Christmas is just around the corner and I will place a few gift ideas in each post - for me or for people you want to actually buy gifts for, if there is such a thing. Like this one.
Mr. Bill, the former SNL turned commercial character might make a good gift.
I just found this story after reading some about The Troubles in Belfast, Northern Ireland and throughout the UK.
