interesting news aggregation site

Findory News is like Google News, sewing together news from lots of different sites on the Web. But Findory personalizes your news by tracking what you read, and suggesting articles read by other people with similar reading habits.

You can use it without logging in, in which case it stores your reading history through a cookie in your browser. If you log in, it can track you across multiple machines.

burning questions

1. Why is it that whenever I turn on NPR on the weekend, it's A Goddamn Prairie Freakin' Home Companion?
2. Who, exactly, can stand to listen to that show for more than thirty seconds?
3. Didn't they kill off Garrison Keillor once already? Did he rise zombielike from the grave or something?
