Mike's Blog Round Up

Let's pause to consider the GOP meltdown over the "fiscal cliff." Are you enjoying it as much as I am? And do you think President Obama will actually take advantage of it to get a favorable deal done?

On another note, let's make sure to think back to a week ago. I'm convinced we can get some serious gun control if only we stand firm. Just let the nuts at the NRA and elsewhere defend the indefensible, as they did again yesterday.

Infidel753: What the NRA gets right – and despicably wrong.

Lawyers, Guns & Money: Good guys and bad guys, guns and gun control, the U.S. and the U.K.

Sick Horses: What happens when you get all your news from Fox News.

And... yes, a post on art theft and the FBI's Art Crime Team.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (@mjwstickings). I'll be here through Sunday.
