Mike's Blog Round Up
August 2, 2015

What a week we've had! We've looked at the 2016 Goat Rodeo, gun violence, The Donald, immigration, the Outrage Machines latest machinations, and the Donald, the Donald, The Donald. We've celebrated the return of Bloom County and said goodbye to Cecil, and we've met some really interesting new bloggers on the way. Thank you to all 28-plus bloggars (most of whom are working under their own shingle) for smart and sassy analysis and proving to us that the blog-o-sphere is far from dead. Special thanks to Crooks and Liars for letting me host the Round-Up this week. Until next time…
