NEWS:
This Is True
This Is True is run by Randy Cassingham out of Colorado, and he sends out a free weekly e-mail with 4 or so stories about amusing news events, and adds a humorous tagline at the end of the story. You can also subscribe to a Premium edition with more stories and no ads.

I've been a subscriber for about 8 years now, and he manages to keep things fresh. One of the best features, IMO, is the "Honorary Unsubscribe" in which he notes the passing of someone who has made a substantial contribution to society, but usually flies under the radar of the major media.

PS - If you do subscribe to either the free or Premium version, you get a bonus - It includes a Bonzer Web Site of the Week feature
