Automatic feed from My Left Blogosphere newsbot. Occasionally, some very weird stuff happens … please bear with us. It's not a simple thing to gather up material from nearly 50 RSS feeds. Right now, due to the demise of Yahoo Pipes, virtually no reformatting is done, which results in some odd-looking posts. It should also be made clear that no human actually edits or "moderates" this site, so anomalies can and will occur. Some posts appear multiple times. I no longer have the capability of weeding them out. Some stories appear in their entirety, others only provide headers and links. For some items, the links point to further links where the actual stories are (this usually happens with Reddit).
