Mike's Blog Round Up
May 12, 2018

Calculated Risk: Why? Because Americans’ rising life expectancy is good news.

Little Green Footballs: Why? Because Charles Johnson-related schadenfreude is exquisite.

BlueNC: Why? Because something is rotten with the voting systems in the Tar Heel State.

Scholars and Rogues: Why? Because Jeff Sessions can.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Over 3,000 Americans have no civil rights because they are no longer with us." (Jeff Sessions, on warrantless surveillance by the NSA, 2006.)
