Weekly Wire
Now What?

Some of us here at Weekly Wire are what you'd call "news hounds" - we can't get enough information about current issues and events. Fortunately, the Internet has enough news sources to keep our minds soaked, even sloshing, with data. This page provide resources that will help you attain a similar level of saturation. You'll be a news hound in no time. Sit! Sit!

    Best Of Guides - If you want to get the full flavor of local politics in a number of cities, check out the Best Of guides from our contributors. Not only do these yearly issues contain information about a town's "Best Chinese Restaurant" or "Best Park," they're also full of telling, boastful, and sometimes just plain vicious details about local politics and celebrities. Examples might include "Best Idiotic Soundbite by a Local Spokesman" or "Best Reason to Vote 'None of the Above' in the Gubernatorial Election." Find out for yourself - especially if the newspaper represents a town you plan to visit.
