Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    Bullets *The Aaron Hernandez story is sad. You expect more from a guy with such a great set of tattoos. *My son’s track team won its last meet against a more “urban” team by one point. The other team’s lead 200-meter runner, who was the favorite to win the 200, left the track meet early […]

    As I’ve mentioned on previous occasions, Gilbert Meilaender wrote one of the finest books ever about C.S. Lewis. C. S. Lewis is not generally known as a political thinker. But should he be?https://t.co/1vlzsNSgGC — First Things (@firstthingsmag) April 18, 2017 The book: A Taste for the Other: The Social and Ethical Thought of C.S. Lewis. […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Honest speculation: If it were a scientific and historical fact that, every couple hundred of years, a person is resurrected from the dead in the manner Christ was, would anyone at all doubt that Christ rose from the dead (given the historical record)? I realize that, even if the answer is, “Of course […]

    “[I]n the agony of Gethsemane the ultimate consequences of our sin had their hour. . . . God permitted his Son to taste the human agony of rejection and plunge towards the abyss. . . Gethsemane was the hour in which Jesus’ human heart and mind experienced the ultimate odium of the sin he was […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling I know it’s not politically acceptable to reference Vox Day, but last weekend I listened to a podcast with him on the Tom Woods Show. I found him engaging, and I especially liked his description of Social Justice Warriors. He said that the best way to understand the SJW ideology is to compare […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Welcome to Holy Week. Or “The Great Week,” as the eastern branches of the Church sometimes call it. In this regard, I recommend the 4/6/2017 podcast from “Light of the East” about the upcoming liturgies. It offers a different angle on these next few days. Steve Sailer addresses one of the most significant […]

    I’ve been following this story off-and-on since it broke a few years ago. It is one of the strangest inspiring incidents of these bizarre times: By @ClaireGiangrave, fashion trendsetters Dolce & Gabana have a strong pro-family stand, and they're not letting go. https://t.co/o9sgnksaIY — John L.

    Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was on the show last night. He was named People magazine’s sexiest man alive. Bernie Sanders, screwed AGAIN. After Anthony Weiner’s last scandal, he actually called Bill Clinton to apologize. That’s when you know your life has gone off the rails — when your sexual behavior offends Bill Clinton.

    Brews You Can Use The family starts to return today: Marie and the two little kids late this afternoon, Meg tonight, Michael Saturday night, and even the eldest daughter, nurse Abbie, on Sunday. On top of that, I kept my shoulder to the stone all week, just so I could have a relaxing weekend with […]

     


    "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.
