Mike's Blog Round Up
December 19, 2014

Wherein it is noted that caving in to overhyped North Korean thuggery by pulling The Interview is a shameless act of cowardice. Well done, Sony. Good to see you have your (multinational corporate) priorities in order.

Alicublog: Capitalism makes cowards of us all.

Bark Bark Woof Woof: Jeb Bush is the "moderate" one.

Ranger Against War: The sad state of Ft. Apache, Cleveland.

Echidne of the Snakes: The failure of competition in health care.

And 'cause 'tis the season…

The Duck of Minerva: The laws of physics and the science of Santa.

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

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