What blogs do you read?

Thanks to Google Reader, I'm able to follow about 15 blogs and day and keep up with them relatively easily.  Most of the blogs I read are work related in some way.  Here's a list of what I read, but we want to hear from you.  What blogs do you read that help you keep on top of business, politics or your work life?
  • CrossroadsThe official blog of Renew Lehigh Valley - has some great story on regionalism, local planning and urban issues.
  • Mashable!This blog is the authority on Social Media.  Easily my favorite blog.
  • GOODPertains to a variety of issues, mostly on a world-wide scale.  Gets a little too theoretical/out there sometimes, but does have some very good infographs.
  • PlanetzeinGreat blog for stories related to urban planning.
  • pa2010Deals with the upcoming election on a state-wide level, but also touches on individual Congressional districts.  Very good way to keep up with the election.
  • Political WireAmazing blog for national political news.
  • Stateline.orgLocal & statewide political stories.  
  • LifehackerA blog on personal productivity.  If you are busy, read it.
  • MintLifePersonal finance tips.
How about you?  What do you read?  What am I missing?

Here are my faves:

Talking Points Memo - center-left leaning political and election news, but with real reporting.

Keystone Research Center blog - PA policy think tank

Five Thirty Eight - Nate Silver of Baseball Prospectus' stat-heavy political analysis. Nate and co-bloggers are great at anchoring political debates to a quantitative facts, contrary to the freewheeling and often baseless speculation that drive so much political commentary.

Ezra Klein - highly readable policy analysis that has been extremely valuable for following the health care debate. Ezra is a practical liberal, but he never substitutes his views for rigorous analysis.

Washington Independent - news site noteworthy for its deep reporting.

Streetsblog DC - great advocacy journalism on livable communities and urban policy issues

Capital Gains and Games - multi-author blog on economics, including Bruce Bartlett and Stan Collender

Naked Capitalism - left-leaning economics/financial blog by Yves Smith
