Q: When can I read Mark's columns and other writing each week at SteynOnline?
A: Steynposts, Mark's daily commentary on current topics, appears every day Monday to Friday. Mark's Song Of The Week is posted late on Sunday night for Monday morning. His weekend column on various American, Canadian, British or European political issues usually appears here late Friday night. On Saturday evening, we post Mark's movie pick, or an arts/cultural feature. For those following fake Nobel Laureate Michael E Mann's suit against Mark, he usually writes on that and other free-speech issues daily in our Defend Free Speech! section.
Q: What other features appear regularly on the site?
A: Mark's Mailbox appears every Sunday evening. We usually link to a transcript of Mark's appearance on The Hugh Hewitt Show every Friday morning, and the audio of Mark's appearance on The John Oakley Show every other Wednesday. On Sunday mornings we post our round-up of the previous week in A Se'nnight of Steyn.
Q: How do you pronounce Mark's name â€“ Stine, Stain or Steen?
A: Mark Stain would be tautological. It's Stine. The internal rhyme in SteynOnline is an easy way to remember.
Q: Where does he live?
A: He spends most of his time holed up with his family in the hills of New Hampshire â€“ although, after his last trip there, he's thinking of buying a vacation home in western Iraq. Very reasonable prices.
Q: What did he do before column writing?
A: Mark started as a disc-jockey, and still likes to keep his hand in when the opportunity presents. He's played country, classical, rock, easy listening over the years. He's also hosted many other kinds of radio and TV shows, from a BBC talk-show from New York to the live Glyndebourne opera broadcasts on Britain's Channel 4, and various arts documentaries which still turn up on obscure cable channels at four in the morning. These days he is a popular guest host for Rush Limbaugh on the radio and for Sean Hannity on Fox News.
Q: What does he like to do when he's not writing?
Q: That's it?
A: He also likes recording Christmas singles. Would you like to hear his latest?
A: Wait a minute, how did the Qs wind up doing the answers and the As doing the questions?
Q: Beats me.
A: There you go again.
