Mike's Blog Round Up
September 17, 2015

The GOP debates were last night (though I'm writing this before they happened and I don't know who are the winners and losers that the media will crown), and I hope everyone still has the will to live. Never fear: today's links are all winners!

Margaret and Helen ask us a riddle.

Web of Evil gives us a real example of when size does matter.

Eclectablog says that there is a lot to learn from Ahmed Mohamed's story.

Bonus Track: The Lester & Charlie Review reminds us to eat our vegetables.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberaland. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twitter machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
