Morning headlines

I have no idea what I'm going to replace my Google Reader with when it goes defunct this summer. I've been lagging on doing the research on substitutes, mostly because I'm in denial that I'll have my favorite reader anymore. It's how I get the updates from hundreds of blogs every day, giving me the ability to organize it how I see fit, as well as being easy to read, customize, and navigate.


It's the first thing I look at every morning as I scan through the headlines that have accumulated over night. Today's goodies include...

Australia Offers Visa for Millionaires (Wall Street Journal): This has plot ideas all over the place in it. It doesn't even have to be romance. It could be a feature in a thriller, too.

Viagra Will Be Available to Buy Online (NPR): This one makes me laugh. I know it shouldn't. But Viagra has turned into such a punchline, how can it not?

Five Tips to Negotiate Better with Just About Anyone (Lifehacker): Articles like this one are the reason I love this site so much. Sometimes, their hacks/tips can be lame or too specialized to do more than a few people much good, but stories like this are fantastic resources.

I have no idea how I'm going to function without my Google Reader. Such a first world problem, right, lol?
