The Best Of The Dish This Weekend

Re-enactors Take Part in St George's Festival at English Heritage's Wrest Park Estate

A brief round-up: two new batches of Book Club emails – one lacerating me for clinging to faith, the other providing some back-up. I’ll do my best to respond tomorrow.

Four more: the voguers of Baltimore; two poems by Nina Cassian; C.S. Lewis on the need for old books; and a peak into the actual – love-drenched – life of Michael Oakeshott.

The most popular post of the weekend remained my takedown of the Becker book on the marriage equality movement.

See you in the morning.
