Mike's Blog Round Up
November 17, 2015

Our world continues to be rocked by the Paris terrorism and by our own upcoming primary elections. Plus we have exciting news from science in this morning's round-up.

Horizons parses "softness" in regards to terrorism. Also/too: congratulations to blogger Nancy LeTourneau will be taking over Ed Kilgore’s seat at Washington Monthly! And they say blogging is dead?!

The Nation's Dave Zirin writes the sports column all progressives must read.

Politics Plus reviews the Second Democratic Debate.

Bonus Track: Rosa Rubicondior gives us the best dinosaur news ever: they walk amongst us!

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).
