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)

Glad we got that out of the way
"I will never arm wrestle Arnold Schwarzenegger," U.S. President George W. Bush said today. "No matter how hard I try, I'll never lift as much weight as he does."
Also today, Bush responded to a question about whether he expects the U.S. to be involved in Iraq for at least two more years with the following:
You know, the American people should suspect that this administration will do what is necessary to win the war on terror. That's my pledge to the American people. They have got to understand that I will not forget the lessons of September the 11th. And those lessons are loud and clear: that there are people who want to inflict harm on the American people. We lost 3,000-plus on that fateful day. And, you know, I made the pledge to the American people and the families and those who grieved that we will hunt down the terrorists wherever they are and bring them to justice. And that's what we're going to do.I suspect this type of thing will cease to be funny sooner or later.
