Due to certain personal issues, Ad Orientem will be away from Wikipedia for an undefined period of time.

Dad has been in poor and declining health for most of a year now. Sadly, it looks like we are coming to the end of his long fight. For the indefinite future I will be online only rarely. For this reason please don't leave any messages on my talk page that require any kind of reply or action in a timely manner. Your prayers are deeply appreciated as my family and I are going through this very painful period. -Ad Orientem (talk) 17:51, 30 March 2015 (UTC)


Just another a 40 something reactionary trapped in the wrong century and on the wrong coast. His interests are eclectic and include politics (he is a monarchist with some libertarian sympathies), philosophy, theology (he’s an Orthodox Christian), economics, history (European & Byzantine), ships especially ocean liners and baseball (GO METS!). He enjoys reading on a wide range of topics and also enjoys the occasional historical fiction novel (Patrick O'Brian, Dewey Lambdin, Julian Stockwin).
