As is the tradition here in lovely western New York, my latest issue of Gilbert arrived long after others across the nation have received theirs and gushed about it.
Let me gush anyway.
I love the cover. As a pro-lifer, I enjoyed the insightful editorial. The interview with Ann Petta was delightful. "By the Babe Unborn" has always been one of my favorite Chesterton poems.
So much more to read!
It would have been perfect if one of my clerihews had gotten published. I wonder what happened to the batches I sent in over the last year? Sigh.
Around the same time, I received the package containing the books and DVD I ordered from the Chesterton Society, and a thank you for a donation.
Beyond Capitalism and Socialism, Chesterton on War and Peace, and The Surprise should kill a few hours most productively.
As for the donation, the American Chesterton Society is reaching out for help - consider giving.
We need Chesterton's sanity today.
Besides, the society has so many jolly folks in it.
