Katherine Kersten on...G.K. Chesterton?

The PeP is not even going to bother with a Katherine "KeeKee" Kersten translation. Apparently KeeKee has lost her mind and decided to write about G.K. Chesterton and some former state capitol lobbyist's wet dream called the American Chesterton Society. I really don't know what to make of KeeKee's fascination with ol' Gilbert Keith other than the fact that he was so fat Melville used him as an inspiration for the great white whale in Moby-Dick. Add in the fact that Chesterton allegedly converted C.S. Lewis to Christianity and has a serious chip on his shoulder against modernism, and you have a poster boy for today's far-right. Of course, they can just look past that whole opposition to capitalism thing...

Actually, J.R.R. Tolkien aided in C.S. Lewis' conversion. Chesterton predates Lewis by a couple decades. But why type into a void, I don't know!--mike ochs
