Mike's Blog Round Up
August 17, 2014

For a slow news week in August with the mischief-makers in Congress out of town, a lot sure happened! From unexpected and sad celebrity deaths to the tragedy in Missouri, 28 (mostly small) bloggers covered our week from soup-to-nuts, with a few laughs along the way. Many thanks to you, Crooks and Liars readers, for letting me be your guide to what arguably was the best in blogging for this week. Regards, Tengrain
