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)

"Total C-o-n control - that means you!"
This entry by Glenn Reynolds is too idiotic to bother responding to in a point by point fashion but it should be noted that he practices the bad form of making it appear like he quoting himself when in fact he is quoting a piece by Judith Shulevitz that appeared on/in/at Slate and also includes this zinger:
...there's something about the artist's desire for total control over his or her work of art that seems to find resonance with the dictator's desire for total control over society. Indeed, some dictators seem to regard themselves as artists, artists who work with people and nations.This is coming from a guy who supports a war against a country because the country could be a threat to somebody at some point in the future.
