Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    Something for Sunday Morning

    Sunday, February 18th, 2007

    “The proud one does not know himself. If he knew himself and his own stupidity, he would not be conceited.” St. Mark the Hermit

    The Weekend Eudemon

    Saturday, February 17th, 2007

    I could’ve called this “The Lying Eudemon.” Yesterday I said that I had Friday off and was going to use the time to read and write. Well, that wasn’t quite accurate. My wife and The Seven are gone for the weekend, and I have a chance to do jobs that can’t be done when the [...]

    Friday Me

    Friday, February 16th, 2007

    Friday is here, and I’m taking most of the day off. I have a few writing projects to work on and some books to read. It’s not exactly the agenda of a wild and crazy guy, but I’ll take it. Reminder: I’m looking for manly blogs. See this link for more details. Email link on [...]

    Beyonce!

    Thursday, February 15th, 2007

    Beyonce on cover of Sports Illustrated! Beyonce on cover of Sports Illustrated! I’ve seen that headline at least three times in the past 18 hours. Now, I have little doubt that Beyonce is good-looking, but who in the general public really knows? With make-up, positioning, airbrushing, and photoshopping, they could put Hillary on the cover [...]

    Eudemon Readers Unite!

    Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

    I didn’t realize it, but the Catholic Blog Awards have finished nominations and now they’re voting. Voting ends in four days. Go now! Free beer for everyone who votes for me! (that worked in college). I voted for myself in Funniest and Best Social Commentary. If no one else votes for me, I’ll be caught [...]

    Shoveling Eudemon

    Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

    No school today for the kids. They have seven free hours with which to shovel us out. It shouldn’t be too bad. There’s four of them, ages 13 to 8, plus little Meg (almost 6). I have shovels for all of them. Plus, we kept the driveway shoveled out all day yesterday. As of 8:00 [...]

    Looking for Information

    Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

    I know I’ve been asking for a lot of input lately, but here’s another. Anyone have an opinion on Randy Engel or her book, The Rite of Sodomy – Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church? Email link on left (ejscheske@yahoo.com).

    Peking Man’s Monkey Friends

    Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

    Catholics holding steady at 17.2% of the world’s population. Goodness knows, I’m doing my part. Prima facie dumb story of the day: Chimpanzees may have been using stone “hammers” as long as 4,300 years ago. I honestly don’t understand the significance. Nothing in the story indicates that the chimps were making these hammers. They were [...]

    Podcasts and a Great Board Game

    Monday, February 12th, 2007

    My daughter bought a video iPod with babysitting money and a little cash input from us at Christmas. I’ve started borrowing it and have plunged into the world of podcasting. There’s a lot of neat stuff out there, and it’s mostly free. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of junk, too. If you want a source of [...]

    Something for Sunday Morning

    Sunday, February 11th, 2007

    “Do not be hasty with your tongue, for the mouth is a snare of death.” Pseudo-Barnabas. (Sobering aphorism for a blogger.)

    The Weekend Eudemon

    Saturday, February 10th, 2007

    Request: I’m looking for manly blogs. What do I mean by “manly”? Well, that’s hard to say, but the following work: blogs that talk about being a husband and father, blogs that exude Tarzan-like manliness, blogs by men that talk about responsibility, blogs by men that talk about traditionally manly things like sports and drinking. [...]

    Forced Sex Vaccinations to Andre

    Friday, February 9th, 2007

    The Internet this morning is moving slower than a slug in molasses. Not sure what the problem is. A few quick things: This is one of the most-infuriating legislative trends I’ve seen: State laws requiring young girls to be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted disease soon could be controlling the decisions parents make regarding their [...]

     


    "The Daily Eudemon is the sort of thing that Chesterton or Mencken would be doing, if they were alive today. It's what, in saner times, was called journalism. In the writing and in the reading, it's exactly the sort of leisure we should want at the basis of culture."
    Mike Aquilina, Author of The Fathers of the Church and TV Talk Show Host.

    "Literate Catholicism-urbane, witty, engaged-is alive and well! If you can read, you should be reading The Daily Eudemon!" David Scott, author of A Revolution of Love: The Meaning of Mother Teresa

    "If you like your blogs pithy, nimble, pointed, high-spirited, and waggish, then bookmmark Eric Scheske's The Daily Eudemon. Ooops! You want prolixity, density, meandering, dull, and sober? Then run (do not walk!) to the blogs of the major news outlets. They have just what you want. Honestly they do." John Peterson, Editor, G.K. Chesterton: Collected Works, Volumes 12 and 13.

    "Eric Scheske's web site is full of information and insight.  Always worth a read."  James V. Schall, Author of Another Sort of Learning.

    "Eric Scheske has one of the few indispensable sites in an overcrowded blogosphere." Thomas E. Woods, Jr., Ph.D., New York Times Bestselling Author and Author of How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization.
