The Man Who Was Thursday

Who's got time on their hands? I know, me either. But if you do, here's a free diversion. It's The Man Who Was Thursday (A Nightmare) by G. K. Chesterton.

I just read it to remind myself of the anarchists of Chesterton's time. I had the vague recollection that they were much more scary than our current domestic crop of mask wearers. Well, it started out as an anarchist refresher, but it ended up as another excuse to kill time with an author I like. It's fiction, so really, I couldn't defend my time wasting as research. The Man Who Was Thursday is just a good read, and like most Chesterton, it's (potentially) food for your soul.
