Dan Goodman's prediction and politics journal.

Monday July 19, 2004. I've been given a bunch of over-ripe bananas.

***Spent the day running errands. First to HealthPartners Uptown, where I delivered something to Nate Bucklin.

Then to Borders, where I found a book I decided I needed.

Down Hennepin Avenue to Walgreens. Along with things I needed, I bought imported soda -- Jumex, made in Mexico, mandarin flavor.

Kowalski's Supermarket, to see if there was anything I wanted. (They don't have ads; you have to go into the store.) They did: fresh stringbeans on sale.
Writing: Daily exercise -- Done: Where I Get Political News (mostly US)

http://politics1.com has the best collection of links to political parties (some very obscure) and advocacy organizations. It has some updates on campaigns.

http://politicalwire.com is good for daily news, mostly of national campaigns.

http://polstate.com tries to keep up with state and local politics. It doesn't have volunteers in every state; for those where it does, it gives good coverage.

http://congress.org keeps up with what's happening in the Federal Government, including bills on their way through Congress. It's also a good place to find activist organizations.

For a general survey of news, I use Google News -- which takes news from a large number of newspapers, magazines, TV stations and networks, etc. If you're in the US, http://news.google.com will take you to the US version. From there, you can go to English-language versions for Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and India. There are also versions in French, German, Spanish, and Italian.

I also check the Washington Post (http://www.washington.post.com) and the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com); if you don't want to register, you can reach both via http://bugmenot.com. Less frequently, I check USA Today (http://www.usatoday.com).

"Well Met, Well Met, My Own True Love" -- The characters may decide to change the ending. Or, in less mystical terms: As they've developed, the two main characters aren't a good fit for Happily Ever After.

"They Might Be Windmills" --

"History Line" --

"Port Useless" --
