Mike's Blog Round Up
February 15, 2015

This week The Round-Up looked into the media, how justice and the law work or us (or not), theocracy, the war on women, our celebrity culture, and of course, celebrated St. Valentine's day thanks to the effort of 28 (mostly) small, independent bloggers who are creating some of the finest writing and analysis on the web. We also had a few laughs along the way. Thank you for letting me part of your week. Until we meet again!
