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)

Steve Earle isn't the only musical artist being slammed for taking unacceptable views on the war on a noun.
In another article in todays edition of The Sun, Mohan and Brian Flynn write, "ANGRY Americans jeered and heckled George Michael yesterday as he spoke on a live talk show to defend his controversial single."
The controversy stems not so much out of Michael writing the song but rather his not releasing it as a single in the United States while doing so in other parts of the world.
Neither article explains exactly how "Shoot the Dog" criticizes the "War on Terror." The absence of this is at best the result of bad reporting.
