    Deep-Fried Beer and Other Forms of Beer Violence Oh, what the hey. I’ll try it: Deep-fried beer. “The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic. When diners take a bite [...]

    Thursday Miscellany You’ll find me reading GQ about as often as Out, but I couldn’t resist this piece: A series of quotes and memories from the cast and crew of GoodFellas, in celebration of its 20th anniversary. I haven’t read the entire thing because it’s so long, but I look forward to scrolling through it [...]

    The Culture of Violence in the American West: Myth versus Reality: The Independent Review: The Independent Institute http://www.independent.org/publications/tir/article.asp?a=803 Dozens of movies have portrayed the nineteenth-century mining camps in the West as hot beds of anarchy and violence, but John Umbeck discovered that, beginning in 1848, the miners began forming contracts with one another to restrain [...]

    Autobiographical Corner Is there any metropolitan area more pathetic that Detroit? I attended a conference yesterday in Dearborn, at its crown jewel hotel, the Hyatt. One of the sessions dealt with legal issues surrounding Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking. The speaker at one point said, “Wireless is available almost everywhere, and soon it’ll cover [...]

    The Ignorance of the New Yorker – Jeff Riggenbach – Mises Daily http://mises.org/daily/4717 As Oscar Wilde put it more than a hundred years ago, “there is much to be said in favor of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community.”

    Fahrenheit 451 to Gold. Connection Somewhere “Wells would have had man usurp the throne of God. Bradbury’s hope is that man will let God work through him; it is not the dead universe which is divine, but ‘God fleshing himself in sentience’–the living God making Himself felt through energies.” That was my first introduction to [...]

    Albert Jay Nock and the Libertarian Tradition – Jeff Riggenbach – Mises Daily http://mises.org/daily/4689 Taking the State wherever found, striking into its history at any point, one sees no way to differentiate the activities of its founders, administrators and beneficiaries from those of a professional-criminal class.

    iPad Review I bought one ten days ago. It’s really cool, but I’m not convinced it’s worth the price. It doesn’t do one key thing that I was told it would do (see below), but it does a lot of neat stuff. Although I only got the 16 GB model (the cheapest), I also got [...]

    In case you missed it: “Alan Greenspan spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations earlier today, and what was his advice? That central bankers should be doing what these columns, among others, have been rattling on about, namely that they should be paying attention to gold. “Fiat money has no place to go but gold,” [...]

     


    "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.
