Steal the paper from the office front desk? What section do you dive for when you get to the office?

International?
National?
Op-Eds?
Editorials?
Letters?
Arts?
Sports?
Real Estate?
Science?
Money and Finance?
Reviews?
Take it all?

Lately it's been the metro/national sections I enjoy, mostly to read about state and national politics.

LA Times Friday Calendar section: movie reviews. Then I add to my list of movies to go see. I write down the running times so I can plan around the movie. I go to the movies (almost) every Saturday and Sunday.

Our local paper? Probably the Sunday ads and the Saturday pets-for-adoption section.

I like the National, Int'l and local news, and the arts or entertainment sections for movie reviews and what's going on in the entertainment field.

A political scientist's morning newspaper routine is pretty much akin to the pathetic spectacle of some absurdly over-medicated senior citizen dutifully downing his daily 50 from one of those calendar grid pillboxes. First the mandatory New York Times and Wall Street Journal enema, followed up by a refreshing chaser of Slate or the like if you're the younger, hipper type. Then a brief sortie into one of the major academic "world roundup" databases such as World News Connection or the like. Next, a sweet little speedball of regional interest headlines from whatever your area of specialization is, which for me would mean the Times of India, the Calcutta Telegraph, the Deccan Herald, the cybersavvy Indian Express, maybe the Muslim Milli Gazette, and at last the one I really look forward to, the Chennai Hindu. Then onto a brief but bracing encounter with the Pakistani dailies Dawn and News. Maybe a peek at the Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan or Nepali papers if something really big is happening there. Then finally, flapping my arms and gasping for air, a parting shot of our lovely university paper, so I'll be sure to know about the latest irrelevant fracas between our chancellor and the faculty senate leadership, and which frat parties got busted over the weekend.

And to get me nice and sedated before bedtime, I do skim the metro sections of our local paper--though I'm usually also reading FYM at the same time, so who knows which content gets the upper hand.

Growing up in DC, I was raised on a steady diet of the Washington Post, the greatest newspaper in the world. Nothing else compares.

It's the only paper to single-handedly bring down a presidency, and its covers U.S. politics like no other organization can.

Gotta flash my love fo' the Post...

I head straight for the important section of the paper. The comics, damn it!

I like to keep an eye on the editorial, it lets me know what the bastards are thinking.

Editorials, national news, comics, advice column, arts and leisure, style--in that approximate order. Then I flip through the other sections to see if something interets me. New York Times Sunday Edition. And sometimes none of it at all.
