    I am revamping my Newspaper bookmarks.

    I have 28 in there, not all of which I read daily.

    What I am looking for is really good sites that I might have overlooked.

    I like sites with strong sports and opinion sections, solid breaking news and good photography.

    Design is important too. I have read some of the "Best Of" lists, but figured I would poke around here,

    I am not going to list all of them, but start with NYT, Washington Post, Boston Globe, SanFran, Des Moines, Albany and Glens Falls, because I live up here, The Day, the Norwich Bulletin and the Salem News, because I used to live there, and others like Anchorage, New Orleans and Syracuse *semi-local).

    OK, fixed the spelling. Ya'all can comment now.

    I have the Adirondack Death Flu, and I am on cough medicine.


    I have one general Canadian news site, but nothing else.

    I think the Las Vegas Sun is outstanding.

    Is that because it has something for everyone? From what I've heard from Web gurus, a good newspaper Web site needs to have everything and needs to change frequently.

    I've tried to do that at my paper, which is published twice a week in print. It's paid off in traffic and page views.

    The writing and reporting is terrific, I love the presentation and the use of multimedia is the best I've seen at any newspaper website. It's www.lvsun.com.

    Anybody else find a certain level of irony in the fact that this thread is exactly four posts long?

    Kind of like Famous Jewish Athletes. . .
