http://www.schneier.com/blog/ Anything by Mr Schneier is great, I recommend his books: http://www.schneier.com/books.html
Wired is good: http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2006/11/boarding_pass_h.html
The 2600 is classic: http://www.2600.com/ but SANS and CERT are better:
http://sans.org/  http://www.cert.org/ http://secunia.com/
Hacking Exposed series of books are a great place to start as well: http://www.hackingexposed.com/

Here's one thing to add to Rich's list (which includes some sources that are new to me and that I will definitely have to check out): Sign up for some of Security Focus' mailing lists.  Even if you don't participate in them (by sending emails to the list), it's still very educational to watch other IT security experts converse - especially when they discover and solve new vulnerabilities.

On the paper side Information Security (http://informationsecurity.techtarget.com/) is pretty decent.
