Mike's Blog Round Up
June 15, 2014

Politics USA: In Oregon, Dr. Monica Wehby’s Senate campaign is on life support. Her record of not voting in most elections won’t help the patient, either.

Blue Virginia: Virginia Republicans succeeded in blocking Medicaid expansion and keeping education funding below 2009 levels.

The Mahablog: Libertarianism is still an idea whose time has never come.

The Big Picture: This is how to handle a mistake in your work.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“Had we had to do it [the invasion of Iraq] over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success - being so successful so fast that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in escaped and lived to fight another day.” (President George W. Bush, August 30, 2004)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
