April 17, 2019

Good morning fellow Crooks and Liars! Yes, Monday was tax day, and like every other day of the year, our shifty grifter Prznint is doing everything he can to keep his taxes hidden. I would say it was a matter of principle, but he clearly has none. On to the links!

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).
