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)

Is Bush the Anti-Christ?
"End Times" thought is a varied lot but much, maybe even most, of it agrees with Dr. Jimmy Lowery, who says the Anti-Christ will "make a false peace in Israel with its neighboring enemies, mainly the Arab nations." The Anti-Christ will, according to Scott Ross of Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network, reflect "a spirit of deception in the world system that promises a superficial 'peace.'"
In tomorrow's Daily Telegraph, Alan Philps writes:
Something radical has changed in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The change is not the views of the Israeli top brass, who still believe in using an iron fist. It is not in the minds of the Palestinian extremists who send young men to blow themselves up inside Israel; they still believe in eternal struggle.The piece doesn't reveal how Philps knows these things and strangely seems to take Hamas having interest in the preservation of U.S. prestige as a given. And it should be noted that even if Philps reporting is correct on this matter, it does not necessarily mean that Bush is the Anti-Christ. Maybe he just wants to be that most famous of guests who doesn't show up.
