The Daily Eudemon
"The only end of writing is to enable the readers better to enjoy life."
Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    And the Petulance Prize Goes To . . . | Charlotte Allen | First Things https://t.co/BeumPa5RL1 — The Daily Eudemon (@TheDailyEudemon) September 29, 2017 If this part is true, I’m afraid Fr. Martin has conclusively lost it: A tweet firefight of some sort evidently followed between Fr. Martin and Fr. Thomas Petri, O.P., vice president […]

    Alex bought me this last weekend while in Chicago. The store was giving out taste tests. He says it’s fabulous. He and Abbie are both coming home tonight, their first trip home together since the holidays. We’re going to be drinking Eastsiders, using fresh mint from my garden: It’s going to be a new taste […]

Calipari? **And as long as we’re talking about shocking things, what about this: “People who prefer listening to rap over pop and classical music are more likely to be psychopaths.” Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

    Miscellaneous Rambling C.S. Lewis pointed out that the mere notice that you are enjoying something takes the joy out of it. The moment you notice you’re enjoying something, you’re no longer enjoying it, but rather, enjoying the enjoying, which isn’t at all the same thing. In the intellectual sphere, it’s the difference between being in […]

    Anthony Weiner had been sentenced to nearly two years in jail for sexting with a teenager. Weiner said, “Come on, Your Honor, by the time I get out, she’s going to be 20.” Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

    Miscellaneous Rambling I really like to see the NFL taking it in the shorts like this. It should’ve happened years ago, with their hubristic “Pink October,” but I’ll take it any way I can get it. The League is so arrogant, anything negative isn’t negative enough. Angry NFL Fans Lash Out, Burn Jerseys Over Protests: […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Gavin McInnes has joined CRTV, which is the conservative TV “network”on the Internet. The show is called “Get Off My Lawn,” and it focuses on rehabilitating fatherhood. McInnes thnks CRTV is going to get huge, and he wants to be a part of it. I suspect he’s right. There is a big need […]

    Brews You Can Use This . . . heat . . . is . . . unbearable. I know the Puerto Ricans are suffering, but man, this humidity is stultifying. I went to the produce site last night to work on my beds for just an hour, after sunset (from 7:00 to 8:00). In just […]

    Well, I felt the lecture could’ve gone a lot better, but that’s probably just my arrogance expecting more out of me than my talent allows. No one killed himself to get out of listening to more, almost everyone came back after the break for Q&A, and people said nice things about it. I’ll take it. […]

    Tonight’s Handout Prepping, prepping, and prepping. Not much time for blogging, blogging, blogging. Below is tonight’s handout for my “Catholic History in 30 Minutes” presentation at a local bar. My first dry run took me 90 minutes. I then got it down to 60 minutes. I then flew through it in 40 minutes. By putting […]

     


    "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.
