Mike's Blog Round Up
April 12, 2016

The Big Picture: Life expectancy in the U.S. is all about location, location, location. Oh, and being wealthy, too.

News Corpse: Conservatives in America are crusading against Zari, the six-year old Afghan girl Muppet added to the local production of Sesame Street in Kabul.

Down with Tyranny: There’s something rotten in the state of Pennsylvania and the stench is coming from Trump supporters.

Left in Alabama: There’s a petition to prevent legalized hate from crossing the border from Mississippi.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"My goodness, I thought we've-- we've held that the 14th Amendment protects all races. I mean, that was the argument in the early years, that it protected only the blacks. But I thought we rejected that." (Justice Antonin Scalia, October 15, 2013.)
