Lately I've wanted to hide from the news since everything I read is depressing, maddening, or both. Even through my very selective lenses (most of my news comes from blogs about books, infrastructure, and local happenings) a lot comes in that makes me angry. I could detail some of the topics and make this more of a full-fledged post, but fear I would just stoke my own rage. Let's just say: trains, gay rights, Amazonisacorporatemonster, and leave it at that.

And I usually hate to admit this, but I will tell you, elect of the internet (read: everyone ever): I am woefully uninformed about politics. And an election is coming up. What do you read when you want to be an informed voter? Presumably, in most if not all cases, you know what party lines I will vote along, but I do want to know something about the candidates before I do that. Any advice much appreciated.

  1. I'm a fan of for national news and scandal-type stuff; Matt Yglesias at is probably my favorite pundit.

    Also, AAARGH politics. This country is so full of stupid. And malicious.
