Your favorite web sites: espn.com, si.com and cbssportsline.com because, as some president observed, I prefer to start the day with the sports page because it contains stories of human triumph rather than the front page which is filled with human failure; textweek.com because it is such a useful site for preachers; dailykos.com for its progressive politics; facebook because it helps me stay connected with far-flung friends

Your hero? Martin Luther King, Jr.
