Mike's Blog Round Up
January 27, 2018

Mad Kane: Ode to an enabler.

Off the Charts Blog: Even as the tax cut disaster in Kansas, Republicans climb Brownback Mountain and breathlessly whisper, “I wish I could quit you.”

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Something is rotten at Michigan State—and across the NCAA.

Calculated Risk: The U.S. economy grew by 2.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"We are looking at a 3% but we think it could be 5 [percent] or even 6 [percent]. We are going to have growth that will be tremendous." (Donald Trump, September 28, 2015.)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round Up this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
