Mike's Blog Round Up
January 6, 2014

Happy New Year folks! I am truly excited about being here. It's a slow start to the year, and much of the Blogohood seems either still on vacation, or looking in the rear-view mirror at 2013. That said, let's get rolling!

Gary Greenberg: "I Smoked Pot With David Brooks."

Booman Tribune: Takes A look inside The Biggest Mouth In The GOP.

First Draft: Doc unpacks the Universities’ practice of punishing employees for their off-hours social media writing. I can relate to this, Doc!

The Wertzone has a very good listing of all the great SciFi/Fantasy books, games, TV shows and movies coming out in 2014.

Stay warm, folks-- and don't leave the house unprepared in cold like this. Bring your pets in, and DO take time to ensure that your neighbors are OK, especially the elderly.
