Happy Birthday, G.K. Chesterton!

Fun fact: fantasy/science fiction authors Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman dedicated their collaborative novel "Good Omens" to the memory of Chesterton. (I haven't read "Good Omens" but I've read many of Pratchett's "Discworld" novels and do recommend them--most of them are even suitable for young teens, which is more than can be said for many science fiction/fantasy novels written in the last 20 or so years.)

Celebrate Chesterton's birthday. Have a beer, read something witty, become a distributist (join a guild! or form one!).
