Most blogs and blog-like presences on the Internet include links to other blogs, lists which stretch out into the hundreds. No one reads through them except for other bloggers, hoping to find themselves connected. I’ll spare you the boredom and me the work that’s involved with that kind of list. I will recommend a few web sites, however. These are places where thoughtful, intelligent, articulate, and experienced people publish their work. At any one of them, you’ll discover something new, something important, something interesting.
- At War in Context, Paul Woodward monitors and comments on the significant matters of our time.
- The New York Review maintains an archive of articles by Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Frances Fitzgerald.
- Tom Englehardt, writer and editor at The Nation Institute, edits and occasionally writes articles at TomDispatch.
- Paul Krugman writes a column for The New York Times. So, of course do many other good folk.
- Moyers & Company is home to several good writers, chief among them, of course, Bill Moyers.
- Asher Miller runs the Post Carbon Institute, whose name pretty well describes its goals.
- For a trans-Atlantic take on news, The Guardian is a good place to start.
There are more, and I’ll add them as they occur to me.
