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 email@example.com.
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)

Brendan O'Neill is one of the better bloggers I have come across in a while. Today he has a good post about journalism students interest in the news and yesterday, after linking to some stories about U.S. war plans towards Iraq, including the one I linked to on Friday, he asks:
So what's it going to be - an all-out attack from bases surrounding Iraq? No attack at all? Or just more of the occassional bombings that have gone largely unreported for years...?Nobody outside of power knows the answer for sure so I'm not going to make any ventures but it it worth thinking about.
I haven't had the time yet to go through many his essays for Spiked and other publications but those I've read so far have been interesting. A piece for yellowtimes.org, for example, asks, "Why shouldn't third world states have nukes?''
