Mike's Blog Round Up
November 20, 2015

The cover of Time magazine is especially moving this week. Expect to see this one nominated for an award. And now on to the morning links: each one is also a winner!

Stupidparty Math examines the humility of Ben Carson.

Green Eagle has something to say to Ted Cruz.

Eclectablog sees another radical religious group disenfranchising women.

Bonus Track: Old Jews Telling Jokes is always a good place to have a laugh and to cheer up. But stay to the end on this one, there’s a special coda that is very moving. Especially after what Donald Trump has suggested.

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).
