Psyche's News Roundup

For quite some time I've considered cross-publishing a great source of news links. Providing commentary is fun, at least for me, and it's also a luxury. There often isn't time to write a tenth of the posts I'd like to put up. So it's a good idea to concentrate a day's stories down into links with a bare minimum of descriptive commentary. Now, the great news filter, and I surely don't know a better one, is astrological/spiritual site named I've linked to it under my Real Stream Media section simply as 'Filter.' Lord Wife has been known to consult astrology, and although it failed to keep her from marrying me, I'm still a little bashful about the subject in its entirety. Either way, whoever runs possesses a dazzling intellect, part of which they use to diligently search through a staggering amount of media every day, so much that they've even linked to some of my posts. Which is how they came to my attention. So, Mr. or Mrs. Psyche, if you're out there, thank you for performing a great service. It's one I'd like to share with my readers.
