Mike's Blog Round Up

Hello, everyone. It's good to be back.

So… Ebola. Not good, eh? But, then… cancer, heart disease, gun violence…

It's a good thing there's a Surgeon General in place to tackle all the truly terrifying health problems facing the country while Republicans scream about Ebola as a way to stir up the culture of fear, score cheap political points against a "foreign" president, and further their insane rightist narratives about terrorism and immigration, all while denying government adequate funding and waging an ongoing ideological war against science and enlightenment, progress be damned. Oh, right.

Pensito Review: Who's afraid of the flu?

The Brad Blog: Who's concerned about racist anti-democracy?

Vagabond Scholar: Who's going to miss Roy Edroso at The Village Voice?

The Moderate Voice: Who's ready for Hillary vs. Mitt in 2016?

Otherwise, who's cheering for the Steelers tonight???!!! (Yes, I know. They suck. Alas.)

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
