I, on the other hand, have begun to rely more on less common resources as things look bleeker. Such as (but not limited to):
John Mauldin's Outside the Box
Rarely have I seen in newspapers any deep thinking such as (found in above link):
There was a merchant in Baghdad who went to the market with his servant. There they saw Death, who stared at the servant in what seemed a threatening way. Later the servant said "Master, lend me a horse. I shall ride to Samara, and there Death will not find me." The merchant did so, then returned to the market, where he again saw Death, whom he approached and asked why he had stared at his servant in such a threatening way. Death responded, "I wasn't threatening him. I was just very surprised to see him here in Baghdad, since I have an appointment with him in Samara later this afternoon."
