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

    "Nolan’s third Batman film was inspired by Charles Dickens’s 'A Tale of Two Cities,' though much of the dialogue might have been written by Edmund Burke." https://t.co/L13AvIL32B — The American Conservative (@amconmag) January 21, 2018 Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

    Trans Fun Man, I love: The idiots are attacking one another as the logical implications of trans living play out. Under attack now: Heterosexual males who claim to believe the trans hogwash but refuse to date another man who says he’s a woman. “I say I’m a woman. Why won’t you date me? You’re discriminating […]

    Brews You Can Use For the first time this year, I feel normal. I still had low energy and virtually no motivation this week, but yesterday, I noticed that I seemed to have my wind back. Heck, I almost felt good. So I’ll celebrate. My hometown is having a Winter Blues Festival this evening, so […]

    Running a bit late today. Theology on Tap went well last night. We changed the venue, which seemed to make a big difference. I’ll be continuing the series. Next up: Zen Buddhism. It’s a natural outgrowth of last night’s lecture, which talked about Kerouac’s Catholicism and Buddhism. I was surprised that there was quite a […]

    Kerouac and Anthony “I felt like a million dollars; I was adventuring in the crazy American night.” That was a Jack Kerouac Tweet. Alright, Kerouac didn’t Tweet it, of course, since he died in 1967, which was, what, two years before Twitter, but I saw it yesterday on the Kerouac Twitter feed. If you’re in […]

If anyone knows anything about growing quantities of cut flowers and wouldn’t mind answering questions via email, please email me! I’d really appreciate it. Our current proposed roster […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling: On History Day 12. The flu softens its grip on me every day, but it’s not going away soon. Although I am taking walks outdoors (on top of the exercise, my lungs seem to enjoy the cold), I’m still not back to a regular exercise routine. Theology on Tap is in two days. […]

    "Many colleges claim that they develop 'leaders.' All too often, that means turning out graduates who cannot feel fulfilled unless they are telling other people what to do. There are already too many people like that, and they are a menace to everyone else's freedom." — Thomas Sowell (@ThomasSowell) January 14, 2018 Bookmark it: del.icio.us […]

    Brews You Can Use This has been a long time in coming: “A bill that would end Indiana’s prohibition-era ban on carryout Sunday alcohol sales was overwhelmingly approved by a key state Senate committee.” Link. I grew up on the Indiana border, went to school at Notre Dame, and live on the border. This law […]

    Lecture Notes This illness continues to dog me, taking my crops, land, money, and womenfolk. For today, I merely present part of my notes from Part I of the Theology on Tap Lecture on the causes of the Reformation . . . The Black Death: As much as 60% of Europe wiped out. Good clergy […]

     


    "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.
