Mike's Blog Round Up
October 25, 2014

It wasn't so long ago that no one knew what a hashtag was. Now of course everyone does, thanks to Twitter, and they've become an essential ingredient in our social communication. Indeed, they've become so much a part of how we interact that I'm just going to make some up to go with today's links. Use them if you want. You never know what might trend, what might catch on. Like, oh, maybe, #WeinerCreep?

Prairie Weather: #SCOTUSracism.

Liberal Values: #ObamaTheRepublican.

Echidne of the Snakes: #OnlineHarassment.

All Things Democrat: #SilentGenerationConservatism.

And here's one more, taken from the title of the post:

Can It Happen Here?: #EndTorture.


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