To plod, perchance to renovate

It's time for a blog makeover, reader. Please be brave. It might get messy.

And while I'm bashing my thumb with the hammer and tripping over loose floorboards, here's G.K. Chesterton again:

The power of wealth, and that power at its vilest, is increasing in the modern world. A very good and just people, without this temptation, might not need, perhaps, to make clear rules and systems to guard themselves against the power of our great financiers. But that is because a very just people would have shot them long ago, from mere native good feeling.
