Mike's Blog Round Up
April 29, 2015

Regarding the ongoing situation in Baltimore, to quote Comrade Misfit: "Yes, a lot of what goes on in any riot is opportunism and hooliganism. Yet, one should not lose sight of how well the ground was prepared for it." Speaking of which:

Lawyers, Guns & Money: The Fourth Amendment, traffic stops, and arbitrary and abusive police behavior.

Meanwhile, in happier news:

Outside the Beltway: Republicans can't stop a nuclear deal with Iran.

Bark Bark Woof Woof: It was Gay Day at the Supreme Court, and things are looking promising.

And looking at that in broader political terms: SCOTUS, same-sex marriage, and the electoral viability of the GOP.

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).
