Another journalist blog...
Wilson's Weekly Weblog, from news editor Carroll Wilson of the Times Record News in Wichita Falls, TX.
And this one: PowerLine, is by three attorneys, of whom one is a former journalist and two work in a think tank. It has lots and lots of links and thoughts about politics and the news, particularly in Minnesota.
(Both these blogs look like mine. Time to do some redesign work.....)

A dream fantasy of mine....
Has been to visit all the old churches in the City of London. I may have done a third of these, but this website makes if easy to find them all, so one day, maybe....
Also found here: Link to London Walks. Check the daily schedules of walks around London, and just show up at the right Tube station and pay five pounds; you get a two-hour themed walk with an expert guide. How about this one, tomorrow:
11:20 am Marylebone Underground: Bakerloo
"There are places I'll remember all my life", sang the Beatles in one of their most evocative songs. Many of those places are in the "London Town" of this get back with Richard, "the Pied Piper of Beatlemania" (The Miami Herald), to the film locations for A Hard Day's Night and Help, the registry office where two of the Fabs were married, and the apartment immortalised by Ringo, John and Yoko. We'll also see the house where Paul lived with his glamorous girlfriend, actress Jane Asher. Those were the days...for it was in that house that John and Paul wrote I want to hold your hand. And to cap it all we'll go up to St. John's Wood to see the legendary Abbey Road studios and crosswalk. As the Toronto Globe and Mail said of the walk, "A splendid time is guaranteed for all."
