Mike's Blog Round Up
September 13, 2015

Fablog: Fear not, women. After they defund Planned Parenthood, Louisiana Republicans will just tell dentists to adjust their chairs.

Ramona’s Voices: One face of homelessness in America.

Joe.My.God: Burning Man sicks the lawyers on Quizno’s.

Crooked Timber: What if America’s military adventures got Yelp reviews?

Speaking of which, your quotes of the day:
“Had we had to do it [the invasion of Iraq] over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success - being so successful so fast that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in escaped and lived to fight another day.” (President George W. Bush, August 2004)
“After September 11th having been hit once how could we take a chance that Saddam might strike again? And that's the threat that has been removed and I think we are all safer with that threat removed.” (Ari Fleischer, former Bush press secretary, March 2009)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
