Mike's Blog Round Up

I write this on Christmas Day, sitting under the mistletoe, you know, waiting…

Gin and Tacos gives us the gift of grade inflation.

The Inverse Square doesn't want you to take out a loan to pay off your bills, despite what the banksters want.

Manner of Speaking rewrites the Grinch's speech. (A classic post from 2009, but so worth revisiting it!)

Bonus Track: I was feeling depressed because Karl Rove's birthday is Christmas, but This Day In Science Fiction redeemed the day with a reminder: it's also Rod Serling's birthday! Yay!

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberland. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twitter machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
