Mike's Blog Round Up
May 24, 2018

Happy Friday on a long weekend! Let's slide into Memorial Day Weekend together, Crooks and Liars! Today we got sports, summer camp, road trips, popcorn, and movies for ya!

Greg Fallis covers the intersection of politics and sports.

News Corpse tells us what Comrade Trump won't be doing this summer. Yeah, The Saturday Afternoon Post has a career highlight of Mike Pence, you know, if you wanted more background on Mr. Ambitious. And Green Eagle spots a collectable.

Egberto Willies talks to us about fuel economy.

Bonus Track: Live long and prosper! Ars Technica gives us an encyclopedic look at Star Trek, and says that the best is yet to come!

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).

Can you help us out?
