Mike's Blog Round Up
March 24, 2016

Though a Canadian (albeit with significant American ancestry and an American high school / university education), I talk a lot about U.S. politics. But let me turn that around. What, dear Americans, do you really think of our new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, who was just down there for a visit? (Please don't focus on the wavy hair and sparkling eyes.)

Beggars Can Be Choosers: The insanity of Trump's border wall.

The Brad Blog: The disgraceful day for democracy.

Infidel753: The bloody assault of religion.

Civic Skunk Works: The world abandons David Brooks.

Human Voices: The rhetoric of continuity and change.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.
