Although I personally have lost complete faith in C-SPAN's claim of total political neutrality, I checked out their redesigned site today and found these amazingly thorough lists of links to resources we could all use from time to time.

Thanks for adding your list to this tread. Great resources. A lot of people use the web only casually, and don't know how to find stuff when they need to. A resource like this on FR can be very helpful.

Ask jr, maybe these links could be added somewhere so they are always available. Sure would come in handy for e-mails and such!
