[nSLUG] Debian drift-->Nothing in /etc/apt/sources.list -->>sources.old, Yes

I checked /etc/apt/sources.list to see if I could see where I'm at,
No text there....blank... huh?
Then I checked /etc/apt/sources.list.old
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main
$ cat /etc/debian_version
[Per APT HOWTO <
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-basico.en.html>] I tried:
debian:/# apt-get install netselect
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package netselect
Is this because there's nothing in /etc/sources.list for Debian to point to?
Assumption: Need mirrors in /etc/apt/sources.list to update/upgrade.
Assumption: Thought apt-get install netselect would get me started on that.
Any help in clarifying my confusion much appreciated.
