The Future Is Showing Up

WhatsApp Telegram

On the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show we discussed the jihad's first murder of a sitting member of the British Parliament and the first Islamic murder in an English church. The slaughter of David Amess has already faded into the usual woozy passive blur of candlelight vigils, but, before his death is completely memory-holed, I would like to note one particular distinction of Sir David: He had five children. This made him an unusual man for one of his generation (born 1952) and a remarkably enthusiastic father among today's Englishmen. As Fleet Street reported the day before Sir David's horrific stabbing, the fertility rate in England and Wales has fallen to the lowest on record - 1.58 "children per woman", as it is still quaintly ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be Will Be)

WhatsApp Telegram

The great songwriting team of Livingston & Evans came to an end twenty years ago - October 17th 2001 - with the death of Jay Livingston. His younger brother, Alan Livingston, co-wrote a favorite song of mine (if not of Gavin McInnes), but, other than that, I would have to account Jay the better songsmith. Everyone knows at least one Livingston & Evans song, because, starting next month, you're going to be hearing "Silver Bells" at the mall and at the diner in high rotation until Christmas Day. But that's a tad premature, so here's an alternative from the team: When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother, 'What will I be? Will I be pretty? Will I be rich?' Here's what she said to me: Que Sera Sera Whatever will be will be The future's ...

The Ages of Woman

Programming note: If you missed today's audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week on Serenade Radio in the UK, do treat yourself and catch the rerun. It airs Monday morn at 5.30am London time - that's 9.30pm Sunday on the US and Canadian West Coast, so a kind of late-night vibe to it, but it's early Monday afternoon in Oz, so a mellow post-prandial feel to it. Whichever you prefer, we hope you'll tune in. You can listen from anywhere on the planet right here. On the subject of rhymed words, albeit without accompanying music, welcome to a brand new entry to our Mark Steyn Club anthology of video poetry. Because, as I always say, video poetry is where the big bucks are. Today's poem is Phyllis's Age by Matthew Prior, which is rather a laugh ...

A Clubman's Notes

Lodged Apart

WhatsApp Telegram

Welcome to our regularly scheduled audio Ovaltine twenty minutes before you lower your lamp: it's Episode Sixteen of our autumnal diversion by Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey. Thank you for your kind words about this and other SteynOnline features. Sunday's latest video poem attracted a lot of comment, mainly because it appears to have caught many people by surprise. Tommy, a Mark Steyn Club member from Arizona, says: I'm not sure what I was expecting when I clicked to watch this poem, but this was not it! I might have misted part of my adult beverage nightcap across the kitchen when you started reading, Mark, but that was better than laughing and choking on it. What a refreshing sense of humour from an age that always looks so stuffy in ...
