Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.

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)

(Occupation) Notes for May 18, 2004
I'm certainly not coming out for the U.S. military deciding who gets to have the cool weapons and who doesn't, but if that is going to be the policy of the U.S., as many people apparently ostensibly want it to be, it makes absolutely no sense to not prioritize controlling such weapons. This isn't a difficult concept to grasp and yet I suspect that it has never crossed the minds of most supporters of the "war on terror," people who, as sad as this might be, will get all worked up in an illogical manner whenever someone in power tells them to and then, just as quickly, will never give the "threat" a second thought once they are no longer told to fear it.
The number of babies born deformed and children suffering leukaemia have soared because of the "deadly legacy" of depleted uranium shells used by British and American forces in Iraq, human rights campaigners claimed yesterday.Glad this doesn't make the news in land of the free and the home of the brave. I say these Iraqis should be thankful they are alive.
