It occurs to me that I'm horrible when it comes to current events. How can I become more versed in the world at large? I don't have cable. Let's be frank - there's no way I'm gonna buy a newspaper every day. So the internet it is!
So what are some good websites that I can bookmark and, say, read for ten minutes before work each morning? Stuff that is like, news for dummies. Meaning, they explain things like the debt crisis to me like I'm an idiot and not the otherwise intelligent 30 something year old I usually am. Simple, concise, and timely news is what I seek!
I know I can just peruse the new york times or cnn or something but... hopefully there's something less dry and all over the place?
