Apropos of twelve of my fellow Illinois residents' having decided yesterday to convict Tony Rezko on corruption charges, I had a yearning to reread one of Chesterton's most famous and beloved essays, The Twelve Men.

Oddly enough, I had never read it until just a few months ago, when our friend Ann Petta, wife of the late Frank Petta, sent me a copy with a note saying it was the first thing Frank had ever read of Chesterton's.
