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)

The current state of Andrew Sullivan's "Blogging Revolution"
Andrew Sullivan says he needs donations to keep on blogging and "show that this medium can not only spawn new forms of journalism, but also provide a direct revenue stream from readers themselves." Later he writes, "So please make blogging history, and give this site a financial and journalistic future."
I'm all for readers giving money to their favorite bloggers if they want to but has "The Blogging Revolution" Sullivan wrote about earlier this year really evolved in his mind to nothing more than the search for a "direct revenue stream"? Is writing propoganda for the "war on terror" -excuse me, war on terror- so as to combat the enemies of freedom and ensure a "disproportionate" response" no longer a meaningful pursuit for Sullivan?
My faith has been shaken.
