Headlines Around the World

Want to know what's going on around the world? It's easy! Via Kos, here's a really cool site from The Newseum that allows you to view the front pages of 423 newspapers from 44 countries with just a click.
Here's how it works: Go to the map of Asia, click on a red dot for the Philippine Daily Inquirer, and up pops the front page where we see the top stories:

Here we see two big stories from the Philippines that may hardly make it to the U.S. media. This site is going to become part of my daily reading, starting now.
