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.

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 No Evidence Needed Singers
Secretary of State Colin Powell has joined Condoleezza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld in a song about Iraq's ties to al Qaeda. Powell made the claim the yesterday in testimony before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.
Secretary of State Colin Powell told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that "there is evidence of a linkage" between Iraq and al-Qaida. He said he was unaware of any Iraqi link to the Sept. 11 terror attacks but would not dismiss the possibility.A story in today's Washington Post by Karen DeYoung raises some doubts about how strong evidence of "linkage" really is.
On a similar note, Calvin Woodward of the AP has a piece out today that points out that the Bush Administration has regularly used dubious claims to bolsters the case for war against Iraq.
And I'm left assuming that Team Bush is about to go after the KLA.
