Mike's Blog Round Up

As we learned from the suicide bomber in Manchester, the world seems to have gone mad with senseless hatred of the other, whomever the other might be.

And yet we also saw amazing acts of caring and kindness as people all over the world reached out to Manchester; the famous and comforting Mr. Rogers' quote (look for the helpers) was ubiquitous on Twitter. My timeline was filled with people retweeting pictures from unknown families and friends seeking to find their loved ones, and offers from complete strangers to stay in their nearby Manchester homes.

We're a very surprising species capable of great love and terror, an animal with a confounding will to die.

Infidel753 looks at religion.

Dead Wild Roses asks dudes to quit dude'ing.

Jobsanger sees a drop in racism… at least in some demographics.

ROAR looks at the intersection of mandatory sentencing and race.

Bonus Track: The Suits of James Bond looks at Sir Roger Moore, the fashionable Bond, who died at age 89. And yes, Moore will be missed.
