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)

Michigan State opened the 2003 football season with a 26-21 win over Western Michigan in East Lansing. It is hard to say how impressive or umimpressive the win was because there is much of a measuring stick for Western, however the spread offense seemed to generally run smoothly and the defensive was better than expected, particularly in terms of a pass rush. (They had one!)
In other news, Salam Pax says U.S. troops have searched his house.
A Pentagon flier announcing the film puts it in eerie perspective: "How to win a battle against terrorism and lose the war of ideas. . . . Children shoot soldiers at point blank range. Women plant bombs in cafes. Soon the entire Arab population builds to a mad fervor. Sound familiar? The French have a plan. It succeeds tactically, but fails strategically. To understand why, come to a rare showing of this film."Interesting.
