Mike's Blog Round Up
October 18, 2014

The weekend could not be any better here in Armpit, TN. Had a nice hike in the woods, found and picked several dozen tasty Shiitake mushrooms growing on a dead-fall oak tree as a reward for getting out of the house. They are the only wild mushroom, aside from Morels, that I can positively identify. So, I am back in the house, the mushrooms are drying in the dehydrator, and I am about to get the boat ready to go fishing.

Before we get to the links, I need to tell you all that I think tomorrow will be a VERY Special Edition of MBRU, featuring an extra-special feature. It will be more than worth your while to read the Sunday Edition of MBRU-- trust me. It took a lot of effort to make it happen.

So, with no further adieu, on with the Round-Up!

Burr Deming @ Mad Mike's America looks at Joni Ernst and the smoke of mass destruction.

Echidne Of The Snakes examines Ebola and Panic.

Gloria Shur Bilchik @ Occasional Planet sees more Health Insurers offering ACA Exchanges as changing the political landscape.

NTodd @ Dohiyi Mir says we've always delegated authority.

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