I'm flattered, but I suggest you avoid using Threads and instead consider
what serveral others have already mentioned: Twisted.

You can find more info here:

If my memory serves me right (IMMSMR?), a user on the Twisted Python
mailing list posted not too long ago (today?) about coding an RSS
aggregator using Twisted. Hey, that user was you! :-)

Going farther back, on March 31, Valentino Volonghi posted about his RSS
code too.

Take care.
