New look for "America's Newspaper"

As I was perusing my favorite news sites this evening, I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to discover that the Washington Times had redesigned their website. I have to give the new look a big thumbs-up. I absolutely hated the old website format and it probably prevented me from posting many stories that I otherwise would have. Incidentally, the Richmond Times and the Virginian-Pilot are two of my favorite state newpaper websites, while the Bristol Herald-Courier and Danville Register & Bee are two of the worst. It's hard to give southside and southwest adequate coverage when you can't find anything on their websites.

By the way, here is a story I discovered while checking out the new WT site: Virginia has recently named 20 new additions to the State's Register of Historic Landmarks. Virginia is certainly blessed to have an abundance of history throughout the Commonwealth. I'd encourage folks to get off the interstate every once in a while and check out some places in Virginia that you can't identify with an exit number.
