A Great Author Departs

It is with a heavy heart that I note the passing of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Solzhenitsyn was probably my first introduction to the Soviet Union outside of family lore. He is most famed, however, for his exposure of the evils of Stalin and his belief that the Orthodox east was unsuited to either Communism or Western style democracy. May God grant rest to this great writer.
