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)

International Quirkyalone/Valentine's Day notes
How quirkyalone are you?I more than suspect that the "the quirkyalone movement" is largely an attempt to get people who to feel good about their lives. About time my emotional needs were catered to. (And it looks like I am in good company.)
The AP writes:
Police banned peace marches planned by women activists to celebrate Valentine's Day, saying they would "shoot to kill" if the bans were defied, organisers said on Saturday.Women of Zimbabwe Arise does not appear to have an official website.
UPDATE: Here is an interesting AP story on Christianity and NASCAR. The article quotes Morgan Shepherd as saying, "There's nothing bad in the Bible."
Shepherd is right unless you count endorsements of the death penalty, sexism, slavery and probably some things not mentioned in "Dear Dr. Laura." 12: 12 p.m. 02/14/04
UPDATE #2: MSU 69
"While the Guard and reserves have been stalwarts in the war of terror, most of the units deployed have been in the combat service and combat service support areas," Jim Garamone of the American Forces Press Service writes. 6:26 p.m. 02/14/04
UPDATE #3: It is too bad Ici et ailleurs (Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin and Anne-Marie Mieville, 1976 (1974?)) does not appear available since it deals with the lives of the Palestinians. 7:46 p.m. 02/14/04
