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)

It didn't take the men and women who keep us safe and free in Afghanistan over a year to kill the celebrants as it did in Iraq. On the other hand, the brave fighting men and women in Iraq may have gotten more target practice since they did more than merely drop a bomb. I would call it even, by that standard. However, in light of how the July 1, 2002 total represented a 42% decrease in the number of wedding goers killed compared to a similar incident that took place less than seven months earlier, it appears like the boys and girls in Afghanistan were getting lazy while our troops in Iraq were just warming up and hopefully will be able to improve upon their score.
