Mike's Blog Round Up
October 13, 2015

As I still have a turkey hangover, let's get right to it…

Frankly Curious: Polls and media narratives mean nothing.

Can It Happen Here?: Caring about the environment isn't just for the rich.

Human Voices: Outrage inspires action and suppresses thought.

The Moderate Voice: Unleashing Ben Carson seems to have worked.

Oh, and a belated "Happy Indigenous People's Day" to you Americans. Much better than what it's called now.

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).
