Mike's Blog Round Up
November 20, 2016

And that's a wrap for this week! Thank you for letting me be a part of your week, Crooks and Liars, and thanks to the 28 or so bloggers who helped us make it through a very difficult, soul-searching week. The sharpest insights, the hottest takes, the pithiest commentary is alive and well in the blog-o-sphere.

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).
