Mike's Blog Round Up
November 16, 2015

Greetings Crooks and Liars. We have heart-felt sorrow for the tragedy that happened in Paris and the predictable Islamophobia that followed. Today we focus on Paris and more generally on theocracy.

Big Bad Bald Bastard reacts to Paris.

Please Cut The Crap wants us to resist Islamophobia.

The Immoral Minority remembers Prop 8 in California and hears a long-awaited response from within the Mormon Church.

Bonus Track: Welcome Back To Pottersville gets a robocall.

Off the Beaten Path: Look Inside This Book Club is a funny, Funny, FUNNY podcast. The premise is simple: the hosts (authors Matthew Amster-Burton and Becky Selengut) choose a (usually cheesy) novel, read the Look Inside This Book excerpt from you-know-who and then review the book based upon the excerpt, and you can play along at home, too. It's like MST3K for books.

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).
