Every weekday morning I scour the Internet to bring you the most interesting White House-related items from newspaper, magazine and broadcast Web sites, weblogs and more.

I've compiled some background information on the White House, available in the right margin, which includes a who's who of top advisers; a map of where they sit; the latest complete White House staff list including salaries; and a list of major White House news correspondents with links to their work. I've also made it easy to find White House news, presidential approval polls and other related information from around the Web.

I thrive on reader feedback, especially when it includes items I should link to and suggestions about format and content. E-mail me often, at froomkin@washingtonpost.com, or call me at (703) 469-3116.

I also host a regular Live Online discussion called White House Talk.
