Stateline.org is one that tends to stay open. I like the daily news articles from all the states. As I have time, I read what's happening in other states.
I'm a "follow the rules" type person, so unless it is work related I don't have it open all the time. I do check out the local papers to or three times a day - morning, lunch, and before heading home.
Facebook is always on at home. I've been sucked into the games. I resisted for a while, but then they got me. (shakes head at my weakness)
