I've got some websites (not too big), and now I'm building a script to generate
the news.

What is the best data format to store the news in? I've got about 2 news items
a day, and every newsitem is about 400 characters text, and a "user", "date",
"headline". I store this in s dictonairy and than cPickle it, is that the
best way, or is mysql easier and faster?
