micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.
Please send him email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

An article in yesterday's Chicago Sun-Times reads:
Today is Flag Day--the 225th birthday of the flag of the United States.Say what you will about the U.S. Flag Code but don't regard it as some sort of legally binding law. It isn't.
But for the sake of the argument this Eagle Scout asks you to assume that it is a legally binding law. Here are two other provisions of the Flag Code:
The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.On September 14 and then again yesterday the Sun-Times included a paper version of the flag, which in the lower right hand corner read "Chicago Sun-Times". The Sun-Times is apparently breaking "the law."
