These are sites and articles we currently find useful. Like the proverbial blind men examining the elephant, many have hold of a piece or pieces but not the whole. So, some sites are more consistently useful than others but we feel these are all worth checking out for their various perspectives, particular expertise, and/or the tools they can give readers.
If a site become inactive, co-opted or unreliable, we remove it.
When we find a new site, we vet it for a period before adding it.
For convenience, we have grouped sites in these categories: Arts, Economy, Self-Reliance, Planet, and RSM (Reality-Stream Media). RSM is separated into NEWS - those sites adding articles daily or hourly, and COMMENTARY/ANALYSIS - those providing in-depth studies and insightful commentary on events.
