    My family doesn't get the newspaper since we got back from Mongolia. Not sure why, though my dad picks one up every once in awhile... our local newspaper is garbage, and the national newspapers are so filtered they're impossible to read.
    I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of god. I have seen too much religion in the eyes of too many murderers. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here [points to head] and here [points to heart] and what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man - or not.

    i would probably subscribe to the new york times if it wasnt so expensive. sure it is a huge capitalist tool that just sucks the dick of corporations, but at least i would be able to keep on top of the current talking points of american intellectualism. the only place i really get my news from is al jazeera.

    I'd read one from time to time back when I worked in the Mailroom, because lots of people there were making enough money to subscribe to richboy newspapers like Wallstreet Journal and stuff like that, and a few extras would be laying around so when I finished my job absurdly early because I was that good at it, and I had nothing else to do, I'd pick one up and read something, but other than that, I'm not a huge fan

    I hate the New York Times and Washington Post, they're terrible newspapers, they're leaned on so heavily by the government that they rarely report anything worth reading... I do like to read the news on BBC though, it's one of the better news centers in my opinion.
