Something to add to my history, if I ever get around to editting it.

I was reading Chesterton's Father Brown Mysteries the other day.  In one of them, the good father explains another character's character with the words:  "He's a Toronto Orangeman."  Apparently, our Orangemen had a reputation for being the most arrogant and close minded of them all.

(He's speaking of Sir John Cockspur, in the story The Chief Mourner of Marne in Chesterton's Complete Father Brown Stories, ed Michael. D Hurley. London, Penguin, 2012, pg 636
