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)

A bunch of Linda Lovelace jokes
I'd hoped it would be Pat Buchanan or those kids from Dick (Andrew Fleming, 1999). On the other hand, I'm glad it wasn't Al Haig as that would force me to rethink all of my political and most of my social views.
Since Felt was tight with J. Edgar Hoover, it appears Felt's involvement may have been a proxy battle between Hoover and Richard Nixon, as Felt had not opposition to break ins for the cause of America. That said, it would be interesting to know who else Felt has talked to "off the record." Could he have had a change of conscience?
The most important question, however, IMHO, is why did the Watergate scandal bring Nixon down while U.S. intervention in Cambodia didn't? Similarly, why didn't the Iran Contra scandal bring Reagan down and why didn't Clinton suffer much for the bombing of Iraq in 1993 and, also from 1993, the raid on the Branch Davidian compound? These should have been bigger scandals from my vantage point.
