Mike's Blog Round Up

Welcome to Thursday, everyone. And I guarantee you that it's Thursday. I double-checked. That's the quality you get around here. We're not like some major news organization just throwing out facts all willy-nilly.

This Week in Blackness: Terrorism and hate crimes aren't all that different.

Pandagon: Anti-Choicers are gaslighting the media and the public.

Progressive Blog Digest: Obama's response to the Boston Marathon bombing was exactly the right tone.

Occasional Planet: The opinion of a non-Catholic means just as much when it comes to the Pope.

Finally, take some time today to think about why the media sucks. You'll probably realize that it sucks because people on Twitter are mean. So stop that.
