Global Voices

I've recently discovered this international blog aggregator, Global Voices.  It's not just an aggregator, though, as those are too often automatic and, for a globally-oriented site, wouldn't be that useful.  Instead, each page is edited and translated by hand.  Obviously, I'm particularly interested in the Japanese portion of the site, which offers a lot of really interesting stories about culture and politics.  Best of all, they are presented in side-by-side translation, which, when paired with a browser plugin like Rikaichan, provides a really good platform for brushing up on your kanji and grammar.
