Advisory: The host of this website, Google Blogger, has been misbehaving and I have been having difficulty logging in so I can update it. If you find that it is out of date, i.e., not updated every morning, one of two things is possible.
Either I am working on fixing the problem or have given up and taken it as a sign I need to find something else to do in order to fritter away some my time early in the morning. If the later, I still intend to post frequently on Daily Kos where you can keep up with my original writing here.
I have tried to use halbrown.org to share a few articles and information I have culled from numerous other sources which I found interesting in my morning perusal of new news, often adding excerpts so readers can decide if they want to read the entire article. Typically I review The New York Times and The Washington Post which require subscriptions if you want to read more than 10 articles a month. I keep up with the following:
The best original article and an aggregate liberal website is HUFFPOST. AlterNet has both original articles and links to other website articles. RawStory is mostly an aggregate site. Buzzfeed, Politico, Axios, Daily Beast, Salon, Slate, The Hill, and Think Progress.
Daily Kos is an unusual website because it has a stable of staff writers and hundreds of regular non-staff writers who can publish anything there. Readers often comment on articles and one piece I wrote had about 500 comments. Typically there are far less. For example, these are my most recent articles with comments in the first column of numbers.

WaPo offers eye-catching headline, but alas, it's just clickbait, my story is better. COMMENTS
