Apple?  Microsoft?  Feh.  This is where it's at.

The Queen Victoria of Linux distributions. The venerable matriarch of Ubuntu, Mint, and so many others. Oldest ride, longest line.

Open source. Secure. Cutting edge. Lean and mean. Beaucoup free updates. Also: Linus' distro of choice.

A user-friendly Arch takeoff? It's more likely than you think. Bow down to the almighty AUR.

You just never know what kind of stuff you'll find there.
Google News
The best news aggregator out there. A little bit of this, a little bit of that.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Biased or not, still the best St. Louis news source out there. 

Memphis Commercial Appeal
Did I mention I lived there for five years?

Southeast Missourian
The local rag.  A newspaper with a conservative editorial tilt, believe it or don't.

The local TV station, broadcasting from downtown Cape's only skyscraper.

James Lileks
My favorite writer and humorist.  He wrote a blog before anyone really even knew what a blog was.

...usually hits a little closer to home than it probably should.

Drudge Report
The second best news aggregator out there. Like a broken clock, he's right at least twice a day.

P.J. O'Rourke
Another favorite writer and a big influence on my own sorry attempts at literary fame. Recently deceased. I would recommend pouring one out for my dead homey, but P.J. would frown upon wasting liquor.

Douglas Adams
"In the beginning the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move."

Carl Hiaasen
Yet another favorite writer, and an inspiration for my efforts at fiction.

The Libertarian Republic
A one-stop-shop for all things libertarian (small and big "l"), fronted by Missouri's own bad boy of liberty, Austin Petersen.

Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau
We don't have an ocean, but we're definitely not landlocked.

Riverhouse (Scott City, MO) live webcam
Speaking of that river, check out the view from one of my favorite spots on the planet. Boats and trains and bridges, oh my!

Recent Earthquakes in the Central U.S.
At least we don't live in a solid brick house just a stone's throw from the New Madrid Fault.  Wait...what?
