It has been years and I only have one atom feed left (which hasn't had new
articles in a year since they changed to xml, as it turns out (how much I
read conservative blogs)).

My line in ~/.snownews/urls :

http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/atom.xml||Blog|xsltproc /home/freeman/.snownews/xsltproc -



seems to work now although I don't think it did when I set it up.

I won't be switching from snownews till I have to pry my cold dead fingers
off of it.
