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)

The contents of yesterday's first entry inspired me to spend much of last night reading Seymour Hersh's hard hitting biography of John F. Kennedy, The Dark Side of Camelot. With evidence to spare, Hersh destroys myths and presents JFK as nothing more and nothing less than a cynical politician who loved power wielding power in both actions defending U.S. business interests against the aspirations of freedom of people in underdeveloped countries and to protect his life of affairs and parties.
Hersh's journalism in this book, and throughout his career, is an inspiration to all reporters who, like me, seek to speak truth to both power and powerlessness.
