New: Bad Crow Review, a direct descendant of the late BTC NewsóîIf It Says News, It Must Be Trueî. Latest offering: Another fine fix. Full disclosure: I have met the proprietor thereof, Weldon Berger, in person & more than once.

More name-dropping: Alice Bag & I have mutual acquaintances, & I have met her once or twice. She's a featured dissenter at Shadowproof. ALICE BAGíS PUNK ROCK CONNECTS PROTEST HISTORY TO TRUMP ERA.

Bonus Thousand Words' Worth photo from the Big Bad Bald Bastard; B.'s text is not to be missed either.

Last chance this week to send suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com.
