I've begun spending more time sifting through online resources (aka, in most cases, blogs). You can enjoy the best of what I've read on my GoogleReader Shared Items Feed.
But some of the best of the best I will repost here with comment. This allows me to more easily access them for my own use, but also offers any too-hurried reader a second chance to consider these things.
Wendell Berry is a challenging ethicist. I don't know if he would call himself that, but he has been this for me.

It's not that complex. Doing good is pretty straightforward in most cases. Anyhow--off topic.
Here's a great poem by Berry: "Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front."
