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)

Happy Birthday Mr. T!
UPDATE: Responding to laughable charges of abuse (Tim Golden, New York Times, May 20, more about how our great fighting men and women aren't that bothered by Afghans killed by their own is at Tim Golden, New York Times, May 22), longtime puppet Karzai is getting a bit ungrateful for American tastes. Daniel Cooney writes in an AP story from today:
President Hamid Karzai called on Saturday for control of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan and demanded the United States take strong action against soldiers who abuse prisoners, following a report of alleged maltreatment of detainees at the main U.S. base here...What a fucking asshole! After all we've done for him, this prick now wants sovereignty? We gave them Freedom, how dare they ask for power.
Don't worry though as it appears that Karzai is nothing but a dirty drug dealer. David S. Cloud and Carlotta Gall writes in a May 22 New York Times story:
United States officials warned this month in an internal memo that an American-financed poppy eradication program aimed at curtailing Afghanistan's huge heroin trade had been ineffective, in part because President Hamid Karzai "has been unwilling to assert strong leadership."There you have it. The new bastard and our old oppressors are working against us to make sure that DRUGS flood the streets of America.
It is once again time for us to nuke the rest of the world! 3:14 p.m. est 05/21/05
