Profligate u.s. Federal Government

(On 10 April 2002, the u.s. foreign minister, colin powell, met face-to-face with yassar shithead arafat.   I retaliated in my personal writing by lower-casing the u.s. government and lower-casing the names of all employees and agents of the u.s. government.   Those who negotiate with anti-Semitic terrorists are Evil.)

other collections of links

U.S. Newspapers, listed by state.   Also includes links to television and radio stations.


To avoid updating bookmark files in several different webbrowsers on each of several different computers that I routinely use, I have collected all of my links to sources of news (e.g., newspapers, radio, television) and put them in this HTML document at my personal website. For comprehensive lists of all newspapers, see these resources.

A newspaper near the location of some event often has details that are missing from accounts in national or international media.   The links above to news sources outside the USA are useful for Americans to obtain an international perspective on the news. A view from afar can often cut through hyperbole, propaganda, and local prejudice.

During President Obama's recession, many major newspapers reduced the amount of information on their website, so, in mid-2009, I began adding URLs of major television stations in the USA.
