    “The saints are the true interpreters of Holy Scripture.” Benedict XVI

    Saturday

    Saturday, January 30th, 2010

    Abbreviated post today because it’s high school musical weekend: Beauty and the Beast. Daughter Abbie has a decent-sized role (“Chip”). I went last night, and my house is full of out-of-town guests. The musical was outstanding. I suspected to see something that only a parent could love, but I ended up enthusiastically standing for an [...]

    Econ Saturday

    Saturday, January 30th, 2010

    Econ Saturday I watched the State of the Union address on Wednesday (most of it, anyway). The good news for me: Obama is calling for a new $10,000 college tuition credit. With children in high school, and more heading up that way, that’s great. The bad news: Obama wants even more Pell grants, which are [...]

    Salvador, My Friend! I’ve always found Salvador Dali a little too freaky for my tastes. Oberon, however, is perfect for my tastes (though too many Oberons make me feel a little Dali). In any event, I’m looking forward to seeing Dali grace my backyard this summer: “Bell’s Brewery will add some historical significance to its [...]

    Received in an Email How did paper currencies perform versus Gold and Silver last decade? Fiat Currency/Gold Decade Gain/Silver Decade Gain US dollar 281 % 214 % Argentine peso 1349 % 1093 % Australian dollar 155 % 129 % Brazilian real 257 % 194 % British pound 280 % 213 % Canadian dollar 176 % [...]

    Noteworthy Freebie Highly recommended: A free online book against abortion: 101 Girls Guide.Com. The author, Serena Gaefke, has gathered together a wide assortment of quotes and passages from pro-choice literature, thereby revealing their insidious agenda and mendacious methods. I’ve read a handful of the chapters. It’s an enjoyable read. FLOP! I guess TDE will remain [...]

    Take a Picture: Ink Spots on Ebony A glimpse into the heart of blackness: “A national coalition of women’s groups called on CBS on Monday to scrap its plan to broadcast an ad during the Super Bowl featuring college football star Tim Tebow and his mother, which critics say is likely to convey an anti-abortion [...]

    Twitter Even though Senator Brown seems content with Roe v. Wade, he does have a soft spot for Catholic nuns: Senator Scott Brown, a protestant, raised money for an order of Cistercian Catholic nuns in Wrentham. Brown has a special relationship with the order. As a bonus, the nuns told him they pray for him [...]

    Something for Sunday Morning

    Sunday, January 24th, 2010

    “[T]he will of God is now manifesting itself in those circumstances which are the duty of the present moment. . . . It is the fulfilling of this duty, no matter in what guise it presents itself, which does most to make one holy. . . . For example, if it is God’s will that [...]

    Volcker Cometh? I woke up this morning with one thought: Figure out what the heck happened last week in the market. I was so wrapped up with my office project, I didn’t have time to read any financial stories. I just saw the prices of commodities and metals get hammered, stocks get hit less hard, [...]

    A college TDE reader forwarded this public service post: 57 Hangover Hacks Every College Kid Needs to Know. Easily the best hangover site I’ve ever seen, though they omit the only remedy that has never failed me: the energy drink.

    From the Notebooks

    Thursday, January 21st, 2010

    Mises, Hayek, and Rothbard are modern parallels of Plato, Aristotle, and Cicero. I’m not saying that those three economists are philosophers. But those three 20th-century economists worked within a natural law framework to reach their economic conclusions, just as those three classical philosophers worked within the natural law to reach their metaphysical conclusions. All six [...]

     


    "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.
