What do I do when I am not reading other blogs, playing golf, sleeping, eating, watching TV, or posting? Well, other than the crossword and jigsaw puzzles and the solitaire games and reading books, I scroll through the news online.
Google has a News feature. It's not bad. You can choose to view as many headlines as you want, read various publications, follow links to blogs or opinion pieces. I am pretty much addicted to it.
So, what have I read about today? Click on the underlined links for more.

Business is bad, the economy sucks, there's some allegedly important football (no, not soccer) game is coming up Sunday, and so on.
Never mind, most of this is just too depressing. I gotta go get another cough drop.
