Reader John

St Anthony the GreatI am a retired lawyer and an Orthodox Christian, living in a collapsing civilization, the modern West.

There are things I’ll miss when it’s gone. There are others I won’t. That it is collapsing is partly due to calculated subversion, summarized by the moniker “deathworks.”

My emphasis, I’ve come to realize, has shifted from aggregating good stuff almost daily toward original content irregularly. March 4, 2019, I acknowledged that and changed the blog name from Tipsy Teetotaler, also changing the blog template/theme. Some posts, maybe mmost, will be Jeremiads; some, I pray, will highlight lifeworks, glimmers (or more) of hope, because I don’t believe that evil will prevail forever.

Other platforms: I left Twitter and I’m making myelf scarce at Facebook, but you can read other stuff at (mirrored at and, as of February 20, 2019, at, at both of which I blog shorter items. Both should work in your RSS aggregator, like Feedly.
