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)

Is Sullivan Speachless?
In light of a certain tape indicating that Osama bin Laden is alive I went to andrewsullivan.com expecting to read why these tapes show the urgent necesity of the U.S. killing Iraqis but I find that Sullivan has completely ignored this news and instead is writing about a political category of people he calls "eagles" but who are actually just socially liberal hawks.
The fact that Sullivan is ignoring this major piece of news supports what I said in "briefly ranting about that Al Qaeda training camp footage" about for people of Sullivan's ilk the "war on terror" is about protecting the U.S. but rather about creating a new world. He doesn't mention this news about bin Laden because it makes no difference to him if bin Laden is dead or alive since the war against whatever Bush says is the enemy of the moment would continue either way.
