    Miscellaneous Rambling Happy leap year day. It may not seem like much, but the extra day adds a nice little boost for those professionals who get paid by the hour. Heh, heh, heh. Hectic weekend, but due to an odd confluence of events, I actually had all seven kids home for about 75 minutes Friday […]

    Candy that’s okay for Lent: Of course, there’s no need to eat kale bars today. It’s the day of the resurrection, which trumps His death. Whenever a Christian tells me it’s cheap to “cheat” on Sundays during Lent, I screw up the most self-righteous face possible and loftily say, “I happen to believe in the […]

    Alcohol facts that are really interesting: https://t.co/VfrTMShGKx — The Daily Eudemon (@TheDailyEudemon) February 22, 2016 This is a great list of facts. And I think they’re true. I knew of a few of them already, and I spot-checked a handful of others to confirm their accuracy. I suspect you’re on firm ground if you use […]

    Swell. Just swell: In Catholic TV interview, Bernie Sanders praises pope's 'socialism' – National Catholic Reporter: https://t.co/49zU0X8u5q via @NCRonline — The Daily Eudemon (@TheDailyEudemon) February 24, 2016 Yes, the week of Twitter posts continues. I was going to resume regular blogging, but tomorrow’s BYCU is Twitter-based, so I figured I’d make it a clean sweep. […]

    Lego has announced that to “mirror the world we live in today” the company will be adding working mom, handicapped, and stay-at-home dad figurines. Just a side note, the handicapped Lego figurine became disabled after he stepped on a Lego barefoot. Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

    I took this picture from my house. Marie fell for it. (Later addendum: Marie assures me she understood the 1/2% discount, but bought it because it was in a clearance aisle where everything was an additional 50% off.) Big savings! pic.twitter.com/12CdCMEFF2 — The Daily Eudemon (@TheDailyEudemon) February 24, 2016 Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | […]

    Whatever Happened to Noblesse Oblige?—The Imaginative Conservative – https://t.co/Ucik1Fgjef — The Daily Eudemon (@TheDailyEudemon) February 24, 2016 “Hampy lived out the principle of noblesse oblige—which is a fancy way of saying, “To whom much is given much shall be required.” Aristocrats who were responsible stewards of their wealth knew their duty was to help the […]

    "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.
