Unfortunately, with the built in drupal aggregator module, there is no
way to select individual stories that should appear on the site. Its
all or nothing. And there is no easy way to integrate nodes from
imported news feeds into the front page, mixed in with other stories.
They would have to appear separately on their own page.

This does bring up a different point. Maybe the Fridge needs a
different structure. LoCos could have their own page (meaning all LoCo
specific feeds would show up under one page, like, MOTU/QA under a separate page, etc. I'm just
not sure thats the way to go.
