Mike's Blog Round Up
October 17, 2014

The clouds have cleared away, here in Armpit, TN, and we're enjoy one last grasp of fine weather here for the weekend, before we return to regular Autumnal patterns. I am off for a three-day weekend, and looking forward to being outdoors doing outdoorsy stuff for the first time in quite a while.

Do please enjoy these links, humbly served:

Paul Wartenberg at You Might Notice A Trend has some advice for political candidates.

Bette Noir at Rump Roast examines the wingnut response to chemical weapons found in Iraq.

Gin and Tacos looks at an odd behavior in men... involving "property rights."

The Rude Pundit takes a look at my terrible state of Tennessee, and is as astonished as I am that the ridiculous Amendment 1 to the Tennessee Constitution is going to be on the ballot. I am embarrassed by it, and I promise you, this is reason number one why I am voting. Yes-- my state sucks.

Round up by Monkeyfister. Send tips to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com with “For MBRU” in the subject line.
