This one is simple enough. You check out my blog, you're on the right track. You follow @AJEnglish (Al Jazeera), @BBCNews, or whomever you're on the right track. If you read the Times, the Post, Daily News, watch GMA, the Early Show, The Young Turks, Maddow, whatever you consume...take it in. We can have a conversation about where to consume from, how to consume, and what to do with it but real men know what's going on. You don't need to know that gay marriage passed 33-29, just that it passed. Being informed makes it easier for you to talk with people you don't know because something in the news will interest them. I think it makes you a real man when you know what's going on in the world. You cannot be an expert in American politics, and European politics, and the scientific community but you can know that we're getting ready for an election soon, that economies are struggling and that NASA is making changes.
With that here is your goal for tonight: find out something you didn't know about the world. Something occurring/that occurred or will occur in the last 24/next 24 hours. See what you find!
