In January 2003, we surveyed our readers with questions about books, news sources, and successful use of email. We got hundreds of answers, in response to this:

    "We benefit from a vast array of other news sources and we imagine you do as well. Help us learn about them by telling us what the most valuable online and print news sources are for you."

But of those, these received more than one vote. Today, in honor of the sixth anniversary of the founding of Nonprofit Online News, we honor all these other wonderful sources of news used by nonprofit readers.
