These are some of the places I go to that I consider important.
Here is a link to a good site:Arts & Letters Daily - ideas, criticism, debate
I often start my day by visiting ARts & Letters Daily with a cup of coffee. I find some good ideas there.
And then I go here to find out the latest news from Iraq: Iraq news from Yahoo! News
It's the yahoo news coverage of events in Iraq from the presses.
As well as here: Iraq War - Photos, Multimedia & News - International News - New York Times
It's the New York Times coverage of the war.
It's important to look into what is being published in classical literature and for this I go to: The Bryn Mawr Classical Review
Great reviews of all of the books published that have to do with the classics.
And then I go here to "The New Criterion Magazine" Online.
It has some free reading material but unfortunately also has some paid. The site is a bit political but otherwise cool and important.
Also I can watch the latest presidential press conference from the White House Site: Welcome to the White House
And I sometimes go to Huffingtom Post because they keep up with events: Breaking News and Opinion on The Huffington Post
And I also go to National Review Online here: National Review Online
