no news is bad news

i have a lot of really smart friends who work in the field of journalism, specifically at NPR and CNN, and i rely totally and blindly on them to keep me informed about what is happening in the world. in addition i have free access to avenues of information via radio and internet that i cannot imagine living without. in fact, i can't imagine personal liberty or democracy without them. it occurred to me that i haven't really paid my dues or done very much to support these organizations. i mean, come on, when was the last time any of us sent money to the BBC? as part of doing my part, here are links to donate to some my personal favorites. feel free to add your own to the list...
