The stories operate on two levels, the surface, where speed bumps and potholes dominate, and the lower level, or basement, where the serious business of defending one's neighborhood is, well, defended.
Great reading, highly recommended.
These stories were originally printed in the American Chesterton Society's Gilbert Magazine
I found the stories reflected the Chesterton wit quite nicely and I was very amused by the stories. The last stories I also see as a commentary on government power and it's abuse "for the common good".
Chesterton's original novel and these stories are quite funny, but they really involve a serious take on subsidiarity and the comic aspects of a neighborhood defending itself should not be as comic if we did not have such a warped sense of government.
