If you use a browser that doesn't yet have an HHR extension, you can give this simple bookmarklet a shot.
Simply click and drag the appropriate link below into your browser's bookmark toolbar or save it as a bookmark. Then when you want to add a new story to HHR, simply select the text on the page you want to use as a summary and click the bookmark -- magic elves do the rest.
Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera
