    Typically BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and NPR.

    I also forgot that sometimes I read/write micropoetry on Twitter; just search #micropoetry. There is a non-stop flow of original poetry in chunks of 140 characters.

    Google News has long been a favorite since it delivers from many sources and has a place for me to do my interest. I keep up with The Bronx Bombers, The Oakland/LA/Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders, Women's tennis, Women's Golf, Women's Pro Beach Volleyball...

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    I'm looking through you, at the cute woman.

    No fur or feathers, don't bother turning around.

    Don't you listen to all the news that way, instead of just what interests you?

    Not a knock, I've never heard it.
    I just know that I'm interested in about 5-10% of the stories I see.
