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)

Douglas Anders on requiring students to say the Pledge of Allegiance:
Just how can a forced "Pledge of Allegiance" be anything but meaningless? How can you teach children to critically weigh what they are told when the first act of they school day is a mandated promise? What about the children of Jehovah Witnesses? Or parents like like me who teach their children children that the principals found in the gospels ought to be paramount in their lives?Anders has also recently linked to Back to Iraq, an interesting blog by former AP and New York Daily News reporter Christopher Allbritton. Allbritton has reported from Iraq before and is trying to raise money to go and do it again. In the meantime he is providing some great commentary.
