A European Reactionary from Queens

Wednesday, March 05, 2003

Left is the beloved European commentator--and my inspiration as a writer--Erik Ritter von Kuenhelt Leddihn, whom I was privileged to meet before his untimely death. Slightly to the right there's me--in 1999.

Here is an image of the Last Emperor, the good and holy Karl I. "Gott erhalte Karl den Kaiser, unsern guten Kaiser Karl...!"

Welcome to J.P. Zmirak's Web Log. I see it mainly as a spot where I can archive pieces which I have already written and published elsewhere--you know, for money. I rather agree with Sam Johnson, who said that anyone who wrote for any other reason was a blog-head. Come on, people, I have a dog to feed...

Also, some ongoing commentary on the culture, with links. Ciao, amici,

J.P. Zmirak
