Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    BYCU A TDE reader sends along perhaps the best Lenten BYCU piece of all time: Man does 46-day beer fast. When I saw the title, I thought it was going to be about a guy who gave up beer for Lent. Big deal. But no, the opposite: He gave up everything besides beer for Lent. […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Good to hear: MSNBC’s ratings have taken it in the shorts since its sham fear-mongering has been exposed: Maddow, who has consistently vied for the first or second top-rated cable news program, was sixth on Monday evening, down almost 500,000 total viewers from the previous Monday, as was MSNBC’s second top-rated program in […]

    Midweek Rambling The New York Times opens up a promising op-ed feature: religious philosophy wars. It runs a wholly one-sided op-ed that ridicules the idea of a God that philosophy can reason to. I assume the Grey Hag will give equal time to a learned response from a Catholic philosopher, which will then spur more […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Man, for some reason, that Trump dance video really cracked me up yesterday. I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I think I watched it ten times. Matt Taibbi, far from a conservative the last I checked, breaks down the farce that was RussiaGate. It’s official: Russiagate is this generation’s WMD. Possibly […]

Click the link to listen, or go to Stitcher, iTunes, etc. It’s also posted below in a Youtube format. Postmodernism: That’s a pretty big umbrella of thought.

    "While World War II may have been necessary, it was not good. It was an epic tragedy from which Americans can learn much with relevance to the present day.

    Brews You Can Use March isn’t good for losing weight. The weather isn’t warm enough to get a lot of movement outside, birthdays, and now March Madness.

    From the Notebooks Brownson said, on a speaking tour on “The Church and the Republic” that every society is exposed to two opposite dangers: absolutism of the state and absolutism of the individual. In order to mediate between the two dangers, and give each, the state and the individual, their due, there must be a […]

    “People who pride themselves on having ideas often fail to understand that only after ideas have been filtered through real-world experience do we know whether they are right or wrong. Most turn out to be wrong.” — Thomas Sowell (@ThomasSowell) March 17, 2019 Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg |

     


    "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.
