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)

Lisa English thinks we can best honor those who died 366 days ago in the terrorist attack by calling "for the reinstatement of liberties that existed the day before."
Do read the entire post but keep in mind that civil liberties have long been in decline in this country and September 11 only accelerated this process.
On a more pessimistic note my guess is that we aren't going to see a groundswell of public opposition to the draconian aspects of the "war on terror" until their is widespread opposition the war's functions outside of the U.S. and/or law enforcement goes too far and starts hampering the freedom of lots of people who don't deviate from the cultural, political and religious norms of this country and who do not belong to a racial or ethnic group that is associated with terrorism.
Hopefully I'm wrong because I don't see either of those elements happening in the near future.
