    Brews You Can Use *The drinking story of the week: More older women are drinking hard. This story reminds me of dialogue in Cheech and Chong’s Nice Dreams: “You know what we should in vest in? An old age home for hippies. Cause, think about it, hippies have been around since the 60’s man, and […]

    According to a new poll, President Vladimir Putin’s approval rating among Russians is above 80 percent. Of course, that’s largely because he conducted the poll in person. Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

    A 16-year-old boy in Bosnia broke a world record this week by smashing 111 concrete blocks with his head in 34 seconds. When asked how it felt to break the world record, the boy said, “Lampshade tricycle is my favorite flavor of pizza truck.” Corden  Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

    Bullets I hate leaf blowers. They’re the jet skis of lawn care. “‘Hell’, wrote one chronicler, ‘felt herself defiled by his admission.’” Peter Ackroyd, writing about the death of King John. If you’re not listening to Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History podcast, you’re missing out. He’s a liberal, but fair. And he’s excellent at talking about […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling This is the best new movement I’ve seen in years: “Get ready for Calexit! Now Nigel Farage and the ‘Bad Boys of Brexit’ set their sights on splitting California in two.” Good story: The jihadist who turned to Jesus. It must tear apart the NY Times to run a story like this: It […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Whew. Whirlwind weekend. Tess’ 12th birthday party Friday evening, work Saturday morning, 27-hour polka party tour to Detroit, home for Michael’s basketball sports banquet. Left me tired, hungover, and irritable. And about ten pounds heavier at a time when I desperately need to be losing weight. (One of the players’ parents generously paid […]

    Interesting new book: Collection of photos by Hitler’s personal bodyguard. The bodyguard, who just died in 2013, apparently held Hitler in high regard and said he was a nice guy. In light of what everyone knows now about how the elites have lied repeatedly to the public through the media, it makes you wonder about […]

    BYCU I’m going to a polka party this weekend. The obvious question is: What does a guy drink to prepare for a polka dance? The obvious answer is: lots. But I’m looking for specifics: A lot of what? Beer, of course. But I can’t drink beer. I went to the Google machine (drinks and polka) […]

    "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.
