a goal of mine for a LONG time has been to be more informed about what is going on in world, specifically the running of our great country. the problem is that is a lofty goal when you try to go from knowing relatively little to being informed in one bound. I try and read articles, but with out more context/back-story on the event it's hard to grasp what the heck anyone is talking about.
can any of you intelligent/informed woman recommend a good ,preferably unbiased, blog or website that gives the basics on current events? I'm for looking simple breakdowns so I can start learning more, you know a good jumping off place... that's what I need.
who can point me in the right direction?
