There may be some duplication due to cross-posting and may be updated throughout the day, so please check back. If it gets updated, I usually insert the time on the line above. A lot of cross-posting usually indicates that the article is popular. Annoyingly, links to RT and some other sites sometimes work but more often than not, don’t. However many are available via the RSS feed (Really Simple Syndication) and I’ve discovered that even when the site is not reachable, the actual text is accessible via the App!
