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)

Bringing out the best in America
Hard times always bring out the best in this great country of ours.
The horrific murder of Nick Berg has lead to Americans looking honesty and intelligently at "their" government's role in the world.
Similarly the revelation that the public may not have seen the worst of the photos showing Uncle Sam's finest abusing Iraqis has brought out a wave of interest in keeping the U.S. government in check. Why just today on I saw, in an apparent response to this New York Times article, Linda Vester justify "harsh" interrogation techniques on the basis of "September 11." Vester even showed us a photo from that day.
