Programming note: I'll be ending the week back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for three hours of Open Line Good Friday on America's Number One radio show. The jollity starts at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. If you're in the vicinity of the receiving apparatus, I hope you'll dial us up either via the iHeart Radio app or on one of over 600 stations across the fruited plain - such as our old friends at WNTK New Hampshire, where you can listen to the full show from anywhere on the planet right here.

Robert Mueller's long awaited report seems likely to occupy much of our attention this Good Friday. On Thursday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight", I gave my initial thoughts on the matter. Click below to watch:

Five Years Ago

Behold the Power of the Cardboard Hashtag!

WhatsApp

In an age of moral vanity, it is necessary only to advertise how much you care - in a passive, hand-wringing, long-distance kind of way. Half a decade ago - April 2014 - hundreds of young Nigerian girls were captured from a school in Chibok. And, although half of them are still missing or presumed dead, the good news is their seizure led to one of the great breakthroughs in virtue-signaling moral narcissism: the birth of the cardboard hashtag. With just a tilt of your head, a furrow of your brows and a cardboard hashtag held up for the camera, you too can demonstrate how much more you care than anybody else ...and all without leaving the comfort of your armchair! As I wrote back then, in a column with the striking headline ...

The Heartbreak of Notre Dame

Fire and Faith

Twenty-four hours after Notre Dame de Paris began to burn, there is better news than we might have expected: More of the cathedral than appeared likely to has, in fact, survived intact - including the famous rose windows, among the most beautiful human creations I've ever seen. The "new" Notre Dame will be mostly high up and out of sight, which is just as well given that modern man prides himself on having no smidgeonette of empathy with his flawed forebears and thus the chances of historic recreation of the animating spirit of 1160 are near zero. There is an architectural debate to be had, I suppose, about...

Announcing... The Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise

I'll be doing double-duty, hosting the cruise, and also hosting live editions of The Mark Steyn Show at sea - with among others the great Dennis Miller...
