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 email@example.com.
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)

Condi's hearing in Micah's world
I caught a bit of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's Secretary of State confirmation hearing for Condoloeeza Rice today. To what was not my shock, it was an exercise that would be funny if this was the first time this sort of thing had happened.
If I were in charge, the proceeding would begin with Rice being asked:
On October 10 of last year, in an interview with Fox News Sunday, you said that immediately before the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 that Saddam's regime "was a gathering and growing threat, and it was time to take care of it." Do you believe this was true?If Rice responded in the negative, I would inform Rice that the only semi-honorable path for her is to give an honest and near complete account of what has happened in her tenure as a "public servant," round up all of her accomplices, force them to give similar accounts, turn these accounts over to everybody who wants them -they can use the web for all I care- and then proceed to take this entire gang to some place where they will never be seen or heard from again.
If Rice said that she agreed with what she said last October, it would be time for Rice to be laughed at.
