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)

State of the Union Speech Predictions
I won't watch but will read the transcript. President George W. Bush will talk about terrorism, Iraq and the economy. It will be unclear if he understands that these are different issues. Bush will not explain why he is taking so much time to escalate the war with Iraq even though he says Iraq is an immediate threat. No new "evidence" will come out, if only because there probably isn't any. There will be more clapping than appears on all other t.v. shows combined during the year. Opinion polls will show many people liked the speech and now support escalating the war with Iraq. David Horowitz and Andrew Sullivan will praise the speech.
