Introduction to Pat’s Papers for New Readers

Written by Pats Papers | Monday, 3 January 2011 11:29 AM

Need a quick summary of what Pat’s Papers is all about to forward on to your friends? Hey, we’re good at that quick summary thing. Feel free to copy and paste the text below when you tell everyone in your address book how wonderful Pat’s Papers makes your morning!

It’s our goal at Pat’s Papers to give you a well-edited look at the world around you. That means every weekday morning we get up at the crack of dawn and start reading the country’s top newspapers so you can hit snooze. By the time your coffee hits the mug, we’ve compiled a list of the best stories we’ve run across. To us, the best means either the zaniest (“Court Declares Right to ‘Chipotle Experience’”), the most thoughtful coverage on a huge story (”Touchscreens Breeding Ground for Flu Germs”) or simply an article that features news you might be able to use (”The Food-Mood Connection”). 

And we don’t stop there. Throughout the morning we continue to scour the Internet for great stories, videos, and photos that are sure to make you the go-to conversationalist at the water cooler and the one person whose emails actually get forwarded on.

We post the headlines on and send highlights on Twitter and Facebook, but the easiest way to read Pat’s Picks is by subscribing to our free daily email.
