Mike's Blog Round Up
January 26, 2014

Let's recap our weak in review: we've covered racism, the media, empowered transsexuals, income inequality, MLK, Libertarian attempts at comedy, homelessness; we've debunked news stories, put pontificating poltroon pundits in their place (who knew Mrs. Alan Greenspan was a Belieber?), looked as sexism, under-employment, global climate change, and of course we had David Vitter, Chris Christie, and Mike Huckabee to kick around. We had a few laughs along the way, too. Not bad for a slow news week, thanks to the effort of 28 (mostly small) blogs with exceptional writers. We'll see you next time!

Margaret and Helen want to introduce Uncle Sugar to Aunt Flo.

Alicublog reviews Jonah Goldberg's latest, um, attempt at comedy.

Lawyers, Guns and Money tells us of the plutocrats' fears of the new gilded age.

Bonus Track: Geek Culture presents The Joy of Tech.

Round-up by Tengrain of Mock, Paper, Scissors who also blogs at Dependable Renegade. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
