The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Of crocodiles and cuttlefish

The American Chesterton Society recently made its first-ever pilgrimage to G. K. Chesterton's England, and Dawn Eden was there.

For the most part, she was delighted, though she was dismayed to see a peripheral argument among the pilgrims — whether Shakespeare was a Roman Catholic, of all things — taking center stage. "Somewhere along the way," she says, "the idea of examining and celebrating G. K. Chesterton's life and career got buried." Nonsense in the wrong place? Perhaps.

I rather think she'll have more to say in the next couple of days, but for now, let's welcome her home. (I, of course, followed the other way home: I stayed there.)

(Update, 4:45 pm: Gawker welcomes Dawn home with their infamous Five Questions.)
