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.

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)

Rush responds to Micah
Rush Limbaugh responded to me today on his radio program. No my name wasn't mentioned and the doctor of democracy didn't respond to yesterday's entry on this here collection of stuff but in saying that the coverage of Terri Schiavo's case over the last week has lead some to believe that "mercy killing" is justified, Limbaugh must have been commenting on what I wrote yesterday in a comment on Hugo's blog:
The more I think about this, the more I believe that people should have an option in living wills to state that they do not want a feeding tube to be removed, or life support removed, and then to die naturally but that, under certain situations, they want to be killed. I know that sounds harsh but for all the talk of "dignity" in death, I just can't see how death from dehydration, even if it does not involve pain, is dignified.My words were inexact because I am not clear on what I want my formulation to be, but I do agree with what I wrote, so I guess, according to Limbaugh, I am taking joy in the eventual death of Schiavo.
Of course, I have heard Limbaugh more than once this week say that some people are happy that Schiavo is dying and will be really happy when she is dead. According to Limbaugh's own If It Were True They Wouldn't Need To Say It So Much logic of yesterday I have to conclude that Limbaugh is wrong about this. May God damn him to hell.
