    Something for Sunday Morning

    Sunday, September 30th, 2007

    “Modesty is praised in humans because it is not a matter of nature, but of will.” Lactantius

    Something for Saturday

    Saturday, September 29th, 2007

    A man who bought a smoker Tuesday at an auction of abandoned items might have thought twice had he looked inside first. Maiden police said the man opened up the smoker and saw what he thought was a piece of driftwood wrapped in paper. When he unwrapped it, he found a human leg, cut off [...]

    Brews You Can Use

    Friday, September 28th, 2007

    Gorgeous evening at the drinking club. It was my first trip in over a month, work and kid obligations having kept me distracted from drinking chores. After 90 minutes there, I came home, opened a microbrew, and sat on the front porch with Marie and listened to a new Diana Krall CD I’d just received [...]

    Light Day

    Thursday, September 27th, 2007

    Meeting last night means little blogging today. I’m glad to see that Nepal is taking steps to stop nude mountain climbing because it offends the mountain god, and it’s worth mentioning that everyone should send an extra dollar to a poor country today in honor of St. Vincent de Paul (it’s his memorial), but other [...]

    The Wednesday Eudemon

    Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

    Things were better under the mob: Violent crime rose by more than 30% in Las Vegas and unincorporated Clark County last year. That’s according to the latest figures from the FBI, which show double digit increases in rape, robbery, and aggravated assault between 2005 and 2006. __________ A.J. Jacobs read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica and [...]

    Tuesday Miscellany

    Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

    Hand-cut swastika in a field of corn. People are pretty worried. I find hate and wannabe haters boring. I am, however, impressed with the proportionate cut-job the Nazi clowns pulled off. Check out the picture at the site. __________ Okay, I’ll vomit now: A supporter of Rudy Giuliani’s is throwing a party that aims to [...]

    Monday Moanin’

    Monday, September 24th, 2007

    Long weekend: Seven hours on the road for junior football games on Saturday, soccer game Sunday afternoon, marching band performance at football game Friday night. Monday is here. Celebrate good times. __________ I find this significant. B16 isn’t exactly a guy who flits with the political climate and popular Hollywood causes. I also find it [...]

    Something for Sunday Morning

    Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

    “As much as you watch over your mind carelessly, by so much you will become distant from Jesus.” Hesychius of Jerusalem

    Saturday Morning Stuff

    Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

    Yeah, I know I’m not blogging on Saturday mornings anymore, but I ran across four (at least mildly) interesting things yesterday: Paul Johnson offers his list of England’s Top Ten Cathedrals. __________ The controversial Jason Whitlock offers his spin on the Jena Six. It’s almost never mentioned that Bell’s absentee father returned from Dallas and [...]

    Brews You Can Use

    Friday, September 21st, 2007

    Drink one on the 30th in memory of Michael Jackson, the Beer Hunter. It’s also a fundraiser, with proceeds going to the National Parkinson Foundation. I can’t advise anybody to send money to NPF without knowing its position on fetal stem cells (searched its site but found nothing), but I support toasts to a man [...]

    Thursday Miscellany

    Thursday, September 20th, 2007

    Hey, I just learned that Rod Stewart and I have something in common: We both want to know if chicks want our bodies. Naw, just kidding: We both have seven children. Of course, he used serial polygamy to get his and Rousseau-like put one up for adoption, but hey, it’s quite an honor to have [...]

    Spears Meteor

    Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

    Was it a meteorite or a Britney Spears video? A meteorite has struck a remote part of Peru and carved a large crater that is emitting noxious odours and making villagers ill, according to local press reports. . . . Later the farmers complained of headaches and vomiting. Police who went to investigate the crater [...]

     


    "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.
