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.

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)

Assessing this blog
“You ‘don't trust’ ‘Team Bush’… That's the bottom line of your every non-basketball-related entry and the conclusion you draw from every single news story,” Saragon wrote today in an exchange about “Foggy.”
I have been thinking some similar thoughts myself. Since Operation Iraqi Freedom began almost all of my commentary on the war has been loaded with the message that the Bush Administration has not been honest about this war even with the creation of a new a dominant discourse that I outlined in “Why I don't believe Bush and don't believe you should ‘support our troops.’”
I guess I have to say that this has happened because of my particular interest in this subject and because for a variety of reasons it is the matter in this war that I feel most comfortable to comment on. Military analysis is good but I really don’t have much to add right now, with the exception of my suspicion that the longer the U.S. military –or should I say “coalition forces”- delay moving into Baghdad, the more likely stiff resistance in and around that city from the Iraqi military is due to Uncle Sam not looking particularly strong. (What do you know? I guess I did have one thing to say.)
This blog is a hobby and I would sincerely worry if I knew that anybody went to mth.blogspot.com for their news, so I don’t feel the need to include everything here or comment on all of the event’s of the world. I try to write interesting entries that say something substantial that you aren’t going to read somewhere else, or at least not everywhere else. (Well that and create a set of bookmarks on Michigan State football and men’s basketball games.) Hopefully I will continue to write such entries, which is to say that I believe I have done so already, and at least a small number of readers will continue to read those entries.
