Subject: Chemical Safety news stories from Google

I'm looking for ways to make the gathering of chemical safety news headlines from google more user friendly for both the list moderator and the reader. One hopeful possibility appears to be to use a tagging approach for the news items I've been sending to the list. I have established a CHAS account for this purpose, which you can see at

This produces a list of links that are easier to sort through than the e-mails I've been sending.

I'd be interested in feedback from DCHAS-L list members as to whether this is a more useful approach from their point of view than the cut and paste of media stories I have been doing...

Thanks for any help with this.
