Mike's Blog Round Up
May 7, 2022

Zandar Versus the Stupid: The story of good and bad in Mason, Tennessee is literally black and white.

Homeless on the High Desert: America’s drought situation is not a pretty picture.

The Carpentariat: Why Ukraine’s fight to break the Russian naval blockade shouldn’t be overlooked.

Rude Pundit: The balls on those Mississippi legislators behind the state’s draconian abortion restrictions! Seriously.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"I want to promise you that when ... you start talking to a doctor about them whacking on you down there, you want to wait a while and think about it. Men go through a lot more stringent process to have a vasectomy than a woman does, I would assume, on an abortion." (Tennessee GOP State Senator Todd Gardenhire, asked why vasectomies don’t have the same restrictions as abortions, April 8, 2015)
