He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

I Almost Forgot

I support Orthodox radio, including Ancient Faith Radio, Radio Al Bishara, and Al Orthodoxiya.

Is this just to piss off Owen?

LOL. You're referring, of course, to his disapproval of AFR. When he posted about AFR some time ago, I was rather forthright about my liking AFR.

But you are partly correct. I felt that I should stake out a clear position of approval of certain elements of the "I'm so happy I made it to Orthodoxy" paradigm. Clearly, though, Owen has a point about that paradigm that's not simply dismissible as a grumpy grunting.

I like AFR's music, and I listen to too little of it, but I haven't listened to many podcasts. I probably should listen to more of them, but I get a small nagging feeling that the podcast circuit is creating something of an Ortho-Hollywood phenomenon on which Owen and I would probably see eye-to-eye.

Vis,

I have a question to ask you about oil regulations in the Gulf. I am wanting to post on the matter but my knowledge of these things is insufficient and I need some education.

Could you please email me at
