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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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)

The Prez will give his "big" speech tonight
The speech is unpredictable that Jennifer Loven of the AP already has a story up on it.
Bush will say that the U.S. occupation of Iraq is going at least relatively well and is worth it. He will not say he has long manipulated the public's real fears, ignorance and lack of critical thinking to justify actions in Iraq as well as the broader "war on terror." He will praise the troops. He will not say the U.S. tortures people.
People will say and write stuff about the speech. Their opinions will not be unpredictable. Some "good news" from Iraq will get bigger play and lots will say, "see we told you so."
Within two weeks -probably sooner- it will be as if this speech never happened.
