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)

For a solid piece of journalism, head over to The Nation and read Ken Silverstein's look at how useless Pentagon's George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies is and why the center nonetheless exists. Silverstein is an excellent reporter and has an appreciation for the arts, hence the following line:
In theory, students are the cream of the Eastern European crop. In reality, many bring to mind Bluto Blutarsky of Animal House."Silverstein has written more excellent articles than I care to count -although a search on the web will lead you to some of them- and the two books of his that I've read, Washington on $10 Million a Day: How Lobbyists Plunder the Nation and Private Warriors, are both informative and easy to read. I suggest them without reservation.
