"GILBERT CHESTERTON IS DEAD" began Fr Vincent McNabb's written eulogy in G.K.'s Weekly regarding the event, 71 years ago today, when "His great heart gave way."
The 26th Annual Conference of the American Chesterton Society begins this evening. I am homesick at home this year, but join them in spirit. Hopefully Kyro will make it to the conference and can give us some posts as events unfold.
And today's quote from Chesterton Day by Day is a gut-splitter: "You say your civilization will include all talents. Will it? Do you really mean to say that at the moment when the Esquimaux has learnt to vote for a County Council, you will have learnt to spear a walrus?" (from The Napoleon of Notting Hill)
