Mike's Blog Round Up

Last night's White Sox-Orioles game in Baltimore was cancelled "after consultation with local officials," said MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred. "We feel like we made the decision that will provide us the greatest possible security in terms of protecting the fans, the players, the umpires, everybody involved in the game."

Maybe, maybe not. Obviously, Manfred has his own priorities. But without at all condoning the excessive violence of some of the protesters, which unfortunately dominates the narrative, let's not forget what the protests are all about, and that there are a lot of people in Baltimore, as throughout the United States, who don't feel safe in their own communities thanks to those who are supposedly meant to provide "security." In other words, let's make sure that the truly blameworthy are the ones who get the blame.

Booman Tribune: Same-sex marriage and the supposed "war on Christians."

Perrspectives: How anti-abortion intensity wins in pro-choice America.

P.M. Carpenter: The grotesque "obscenocracy" of American politics.

Prairie Weather: Why Hillary Clinton should listen to Elizabeth Warren.

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

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