A newsmagazine-ish show on National Public Radio which is usually quite interesting. Phish composed a complicated theme-and-variations on the show's theme song called All Things Reconsidered which seems to capture the intellectually feel of the show quite well.

A book of essays by the staggeringly brilliant G. K. Chesterton — his third, I believe. These essays were originally published in the Illustrated London News, a weekly magazine in which Chesterton had a column. As the title suggests, they span all topics from the most profound and lasting, such as cheese, to frivolities like international politics. Further remarks are superfluous, as the book itself may be read onsite.

The book was first published in September 1908, by Methuen & Co. It is presented on Everything2 in an edition proofed and linked especially for the site, based on the second printed edition, of October 1908.
