News backgrounder:
I've seen several links recently to Footnote TV, the site which backgrounds issues brought up in episodes of recent popular TV series like The Sopranos and The West Wing; but what I find even more interesting is the website behind it, Newsaic. This site, by journalist and attorney Stephen Lee, is an ambitious attempt to explain the news. All info is well-documented and footnoted; topics include important court cases, international crises, smallpox, etc. A fascinating site for news junkies or students.
