Freespeechers down under

"KUNG FU FIGHTING" WORDS
I believe that the reception to your video prompted the IPA's director John Roskam to spontaneously announce an invitation to get you back over here was imminent! Your message was very welcome, and very well received. Cheers and thanks for your fantastic and prolific work.
MARK SAYS: I very much enjoy my forays Down Under, and had a grand time with John and the IPA a couple of years back. So we will make this happen! The full supporting orchestra to accompany me on "Kung Fu Fighting" may strain the budget.
His quasi-speech was excellent, as were the guest speakers such as Michael Kroger, James Allen, even Paul Howes was good - still don't forgive him for inflicting Julia Gillard as PM on us! But your video speech was awesome! You had everyone in stitches, and you got a rousing ovation by the audience! Furthermore, the Kung Fu Fighting situation summed it up best- if two white people were walking past, they'd have no way to be offended, as they're not part of a victim group. Your speech was a roaring success, and the crowd loved it! Part of the reason I went, apart from hearing Bolt, was to watch your message. I told my cousin who came with me beforehand how highly I thought of you, and after seeing your speech, I think he was converted! I spent the drive home telling him of some of your personal experiences with bureaucracy that you've related on Rush's show- he couldn't believe it!
KUNG FU SLIGHTING?
I have to tell you I did cringe a bit when you were singing Kung foo fighting as there was a young guy of Chinese extraction sitting right next to me I hope he took it in the spirit it was meant.
Everyone agreed that a double billing Steyn /Bolt show would be a winner, we only hope to see that come to fruition . At dinner after the event someone did ask Andrew what was it that he said that may have pissed you off - something to do with a statistic you quoted that Andrew may have questioned on his blog site? Nothing important, I'm sure you guys have most things in common.
Thanks for entertaining us tonight, keep up your good work and keep supporting our Andrew.
GOT A RHYME, GUV?
Think of the possibilities! "I found my love, at weiner house dot gov."
MARK SAYS: We really need Cole Porter:
Is it a Weiner you Tweet from dot-gov?
WHEN HE'S SIXTY-NINE
Wilson's birthday falling on Father's Day this year would have been the perfect excuse to wax eloquent about the one song where none of the words rhyme, that's even better than "Moonlight In Vermont." Namely, this.
MARK SAYS: Careful - or I might pick Macca's "Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime" for my Yuletide single this year. And that's no idle threat.
Thank you for your kind (and unkind) letters from America, Canada, Britain, Australia and around the world. Mark reads all mail, but especially enjoys the vicious ones. Each day Monday to Friday we pick six of the best for our Daily Delivery. So drop a line to Mark's Mailbox, and on Friday if you're chosen to be the one and only Letter of the Week you'll join our roll of winners from four Continents and receive a copy of Mark Steyn From Head To Toe. It would help if you could indicate your city or town, or, at any rate, your state, province or country. If not, at least let us know what planet you're on.
