Shout out to John C. Wright

Today, June 1, is both St. Justin Martyr’s Feast Day (Wright’s patron) and the birthday of Roland (Wright’s 12-year-old son).

As a Founding Member of the Wright/Shea Mutual Admiration Society (whose membership requirements are so stringent and secret that you cannot possibly hope to make the cut and I would have to kill you if you did), I want to wish him a birthfeastday.

If you haven’t read his blog you should stop wasting time here and go read his delightful musing about everything.

  • Hm. I am glad for the shout out, but it is too bad my blog today is less than a sterling example of my prose.

  • Gary Keith Chesterton

    The closest I ever had to a man-swoon was the day I had lunch with both Shea and Wright.

      I would have been struck speechless in a moment of utter fan-girl-ness. Probably better that it has never happened to me. Is there a association for simultaneously admiring Mr. Wright and Mr. Shea? We should found one if not.

    • Mark Shea

      Don’t crack up and go sappy.

      • Gary Keith Chesterton

        Oh I did. I really did.

    • If by some misadventure, I have won your admiration, the credit is to go to my Creator, not myself. I am pretty confident that my good qualities are not my own doing.
      But I thank you, and I repeat Mr Shea’s admonition not to crack up and go sappy.
