Mike's Blog Round Up
May 15, 2016

Alright, that's it for me this week. See you again in a couple of months, when we'll be that much closer to the apocalypse. Oh, you think I mean a Trump presidency? Actually, I'm talking about the cataclysmic impact of anthropogenic climate change. That's almost certainly coming, no matter what we do. At least Trump in the White House is still just a possibility, and at least something, because America is still a somewhat functioning democracy, can be done to stop it from happening, at the polls this November. Unite, people, and get out the vote.

Frankly Curious: Political Science 101 and political reporting.

Human Voices: Humpty Trumpty and failing American democracy.

Duck of Minerva: Congressional inaction and the spread of disease.

Prairie Weather: Pathological racism and the Tea Party.

Ranger Against War: State-military relations and the lessons of history.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.)
