Hello. I thought I'd start a thread about general news topics that I happen to find interesting. The stories I will be posting here don't necessarily have anything to do with Buddhism per se, but I am interested in what "like minded" people (i.e., members of Dharmawheel.net) might have to say about general current events.
The items I will be adding are not necessarily the "top stories" of the day (although they might be). They are just things I personally find interesting.
The views expressed in the news stories in this thread are not necessarily my own. In fact, I'll probably be posting things I don't agree with as well, just to keep it interesting. Personally, I'm not much of a debater and I don't have an "agenda" or a strong political orientation. I just like to mull things over with an open mind.
If this thread gets long enough, obviously you wouldn't have to read the old posts; just feel free to skip to the most recent ones.
Please also feel free to comment on the stories I post here from whatever perspective you like, or add your own stories.
