If you missed Belloc at the Conference...

Over the past several months, our family has been watching one Apostle of Common Sense each Sunday. We're on Season Three, and yesterday, we had the pleasure of watching the episode titled, "Friends" in which Mr. Ahlquist discusses Hilaire Belloc and the Third Man (from the portrait), Maurice Baring.

During the discussion about Belloc, there was a pleasant surprise: Kevin O'Brien performed the famous "Don" poem he wrote in defense of Chesterton. O'Brien had recited this poem for us at the Chesterton conference about two years ago, and what a treat it was. I remember him appearing in a tuxedo, mopping his brow with a handkerchief, and the audience quite in stitches.

If you missed the performance at the conference, isn't it wonderful to know that you can still see it? The Apostle of Common Sense season three would be a great gift to give yourself, or to suggest someone get for you.
