Mike's Blog Round Up
March 30, 2015

As J.D. said in Heathers, Greetings and Salutations. We're off on a roll already, what with Mike Pence so spectacularly torpedoing his career and causing such a backlash that #BoycottIndiana is trending on Twitter. But should you boycott Indiana?

First Draft has something to say about Indiana.

Zander Versus The Stupid tells us that Indiana's law is working as designed.

Horses Asses tells us that there is more about the epidemic of stupid in Indiana: Pence and needle exchanges.

Bonus Track: Did you know that there is a searchable Calvin and Hobbes database? The search engine allows exact phrase search ('The valiant Spaceman Spiff', or specific date look-up (like your birthday), so now you can find that strip you remember from the golden age of comics. Thank-you Michael Yingling, a nation salutes you!
