    Thursday, May 31st, 2007

    Reminder: I’m looking for blogs that emphasize a geographic region (Southern Appeal would’ve been the perfect example, but it has shut down). I’m also looking for groups of blogs that coalesce around a certain region. Stella Borealis (group of Minnesota blogs) is a perfect example. Email me or post them below.

    The Quick-Hitting Eudemon

    Thursday, May 31st, 2007

    This is nothing. Many Americans sleepwalk their entire lives away: American doctors are preparing to chill volunteers into a state of suspended animation that could keep them asleep for months. __________ First I read about the reverse scam artists that I posted about yesterday, today I read this: US prosecutors said they captured on Wednesday [...]

    Tuesday Funny

    Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

    Everyone needs a hero, and I’ve found mine: The scam baiters, a cadre of funny reverse scam artists who intellectually flail the Nigerian 419 scam artists. This is a must read. Unfortunately, I don’t know if you need a subscription. Generous excerpts: Scam-baiters have set out to turn the tables on the scammers. The legions [...]

    GKC’s Birthday

    Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

    It’s GKC’s birthday. If you missed it, the guys at Chesterton and Friends put on a great tribute to the big guy last year. Smokin’ Joe Tremblay has provided a recap. Check it out.

    Light Eudemon

    Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

    Not much time for blogging and the Internet has a dearth of decent blogging material. I offer merely the following: Woman gets drunk and hurts herself. A doctor in the emergency room (with an obvious strong paternalistic streak, but within propriety, as far as I’m concerned) gave a prescription: Sooch treated a cut on her [...]

    Memorial Day Eudemon

    Monday, May 28th, 2007

    Web traffic drops drastically during the holidays, so I’m not terribly inclined to spend time putting together a great post (“Hey Scheske, you never put together a great post!”), but here are a few things: Are pro-abortion Catholics Catholic? Of course. Canon lawyer Ed Peters explains (via): A Catholic’s involvement in pro-abortion advocacy might (depending [...]

    Something for Sunday Morning

    Sunday, May 27th, 2007

    “The person who is dedicated to Christ is equally earnest in small things as in great.” St. Jerome

    Regional Blogs

    Saturday, May 26th, 2007

    I’m looking for blogs that emphasize a geographic region (Southern Appeal would’ve been the perfect example, but it has shut down). I’m also looking for groups of blogs that coalesce around a certain region. Stella Borealis (group of Minnesota blogs) is a perfect example. Email me (link on left) or post them below. Thanks.

    The Weekend Eudemon

    Saturday, May 26th, 2007

    Baseball and beer, again. Michael’s (8) game finished about 25 minutes early, so we picked up a pizza and went home and drank beer on the porch. A friend joined us for about two hours. A pleasant evening. I drank a handful of Oberons. They went down very well, and I feel fine this morning. [...]

    Memorial Day Weekend Drinking Edition

    Friday, May 25th, 2007

    Did I say I was taking a vacation day? Fat chance. I’m heading into the office again this morning. Another rush job. This one is for a friend who is moving back to town, so I don’t mind much, but I also have another project that should be addressed. I’ll probably work about two hours, [...]

    Ready-to-Relax Eudemon

    Thursday, May 24th, 2007

    Whew, 13 and-a-half hour day yesterday: 7:30 to 9:00. Work, meetings, kids baseball. The kids baseball isn’t work, but it feels like it when you’re in a suit and it’s 88 degrees. Things should slow down considerably today, but it ain’t a holiday, either. That starts tomorrow, when I take off Friday for a four-day [...]

    The Wednesday Eudemon

    Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

    Three coach-pitch baseball games in three days. That’s brutal. The first one is tonight. I’ll miss part of it because my other son has a pitching lesson scheduled. I must attend in order to figure out why he’s not throwing like Nolan Ryan yet. I need to be able to bark tips from the sidelines [...]

     


    "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.
