Mike's Blog Round Up
October 9, 2016

And that's a wrap for this time, Crooks and Liars. Thank you for letting me be a part of your morning, but mostly I would like to thank the 28 or so bloggers we featured this week. The independent voices on the internet are writing some of the most insightful, powerful, and muscular essays today.

Goblin Books has literally written the book on Trump, and even he is skeeved out by the latest Trump news!

Every Goddamn Day tells us what we need to know about the scary clown stories: We have seen the clown, and he is us.

Spocko's Brain encourages us that activism matters and is effective. This is maybe the most hopeful thing I've read all week.

Bonus Track: The Hunting of the Snark presents a play in one act. I laughed, I cried.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).
