Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts.
Mike's Blog Round Up

Let's recap our weak in review: we fought back tears in Isla Vista and again upon the passing of Maya Angelou; looked at body image and sexism and debunked Erick Erickson's War on Masculinity; we looked at corporate America (Amazon and McDonalds), the living wage and free speech, and had an open letter to Joe the Plumber. We had a lesson on how to apologize (and heard about so many people that should learn how to apologize) and we had a few laughs along the way. Not bad for a gun-filled news week, thanks to the talent of 30 or so (mostly small) blogs with exceptionally talented writers. Thanks for letting me be part of your week, and we'll see you next time!

Alternate Brain explains why the Cosmos series frightens the Fundies.

Obalesque talks to the collection agencies.

Lester and Charlie Review have the only poll you must take this week.

Poetry Slam: Mad Kane's Political Madness gives us an Ode To John Boehner, and Piousunyn gives us a... a Benghazi.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberaland. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
