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)

Jim Henley has explained why he thinks escalation of the war with Iraq is more likely than not:
The domestic political consequences to Bush of not conquering Iraq are substantial. The domestic benefits of not conquering Iraq are far less certain. Therefore: war.I would emphasize that Bush will have little credibility if he doesn’t go to war. What is he supposed to say, “You know all those bad things I”ve been saying for the last year Iraq would do if we didn’t stop them, well I was wrong”?
If he were to say that, people at least shouldn’t take Bush seriously.
