'the daily star' is online

i just thought of looking up some daily star (kuwait) articles online and realized they have a pretty snazzy (new?) website. it seems to be mostly eye candy for now although i hope they will buck that trend and make this a really powerful kuwaiti english news site.

i have to say that i wish it was not affiliated with the local arabic tabloid al-watan. its like saying the new york times is delivered along with the national enquirer but i guess we can't always have it the way we like...

one thing i believe is needed on their site is an RSS feed as this is how i get almost all of my news online these days. if i feel an article needs further exploration then i will go to the source an poke around but it is quite essential for any constantly updated media source online to have one.
