Chesteron versus Rand

It’s taken me most of the year to read it, but I’m finally wrapping up Chesteron’s What’s Wrong with the World? (which was a Lenten read).

In Which I Have an Off-Site Post

Sarah at Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering asked if anyone wanted to do a guest post. Funny how her request came just after I had been feeling like I had something important I wanted to talk about to someone. I’m honored to be a guest poster at her fine blog. (Please check her out…
