The Laughing Prophet?

Found on Internet:
As part of the week-long festivities, the Northern State Campus Ministry Groups will host the annual Spirit of Gypsy Days party on Wednesday.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place in Thunder's Lair at 7 p.m.

Dale Ahlquist, also known as the Laughing Prophet, is scheduled to speak at the event. Ahlquist is the president of the American Chesterton Society, host of the EWTN series G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense, and publisher of Gilbert Magazine. He has lectured at several colleges and universities and other venues, including Yale, Columbia, NYU, Cornell, the Vatican Forum in Rome, the Thomas More Centre in Melbourne and at the House of Lords in London.

He is the co-founder of Chesterton Academy, a new independent high school in the Twin Cities, and the executive producer of "Manalive," a film based on a novel by G.K. Chesterton, which will be released in 2010.
First time I've heard Dale referred to that way.

  1. Not that I have a problem with the moniker, but I'm also wondering how Dale got that nickname.
