Mike's Blog Round Up

It's all Royal Wedding today! Kidding. As a Canadian, when it comes to the British Monarchy (and of course the British Monarch is our head of state), I'm a republican. I have no use for that silly family.

The Impolitic: The sad, sorry, pathetic spectacle of the White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

Pruning Shears: The high cost of fracking, and the movement against it.

The Duck of Minerva: John Bolton and the new breed of GOP chickenhawkery.

Copeland on Film: Reviewing Woody Allen's Bananas, which came out 40 years ago this week. (I'd say it's second- or third-tier Woody, but that's still very high regard. It's a really funny, and politically poignant, movie.)

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. I'll be here all week.
