I have added a box with news headlines. The service is powered by WashingtonPost.com. Please give me suggestions on more news sites.
UPDATE 06/16/03: It seems that the news digest headlines from WashingtonPost.com haven't been updated for some time. I have sent them an email, asking if I could switch to the editorial page category instead.
I have added a news feed service by News4Sites.com. I picked current events as a subject. They have 2200+ subjects to choose from.
