Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    Wednesday was “National Drink Beer Day.” Wednesday isn’t a bad drinking day. When I was in college, it was Number 3 on list of party days (Friday, Saturday, Wednesday, Thursday, Tuesday, Monday, Sunday . . . at least in my cloudy estimation/recollection). But still, you’d think that the holiday would be a moving holiday, like […]

    “The reality of scheming, planning, wondering, planning, uncertainty as to what to do. The lot of most people. It occupies so much of one’s thoughts, one can well see how people can think these days so little of God.” Day “It is so hard to be silent, silent with my mouth, but even more, silent […]

    Gavin McInnes makes an interesting assertion: Inner-city life isn’t dangerous. It’s non-stop fun and adolescent behavior, and the riots are merely the ultimate high. I think he overstates the case, but he has a point. Great piece. Excerpt: This is what happens in a world without fathers. When there is no discipline, adulthood is perpetual […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling If you missed it, Bishop Chaput’s lecture earlier this month at Notre Dame is a must read. Excerpt: “But here’s my larger point: We’ve reached a moment when our political thinking and vocabulary as a nation seem exhausted. The real effect that we as individuals have on the government and political class that […]

    ABC News just reported that 95 percent of all campaign ads from now until Election Day will be for Hillary Clinton. She’s in 95 percent of the commercials. Even Peyton Manning was like, “Geez, lady, enough is enough.” Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

    Brews You Can Use: Bites I drank a lot of mojito last Saturday evening. It gave me a pretty bad hangover, considering that I stopped drinking early and pounded about fifty ounces of water afterwards. I don’t know if it was the rum or other factors at play. I might give it another run this […]

    What we have been seeing worldwide, from India to the UK to the US, is the rebellion against the inner circle of no-skin-in-the-game policymaking “clerks” and journalists-insiders, that class of paternalistic semi-intellectual experts with some Ivy league, Oxford-Cambridge, or similar label-driven education who are telling the rest of us 1) what to do, 2) what […]

    Skittles or immigrants? I’m not sure what the fuss is about. Was the analogy flawed? Of course: all analogies are, by their nature, flawed, or else they wouldn’t be analogies. Was the analogy “disgusting” or inhuman, as Democrats and liberal Catholics are claiming? I’m not so sure. Such criticism just continues the public dialogue’s habit […]

     


    "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.
