Astonishing hilarity

“The newspapers are full of an astonishing hilarity about the rapidity with which hundreds or thousands of human families are being broken up by the lawyers; and about the undisguised haste of the ‘hustling judges’ who carry on the work.  It is a form of hilarity which would seem to recall the gaiety of a grave-digger in a city swept by a pestilence.” – G. K. Chesterton
