In tonight's finale, it's a perfectly normal Election Day in America: The armored car purred down empty streets. They were empty even for that hour of the morning. Handley indicated that and said, 'They always shift traffic away from the line of drive ever since the attempted bombing that nearly ruined the Leverett Election of 'ninety-two.' When the car stopped, Norman was helped out by the always polite Handley into an underground drive whose walls were lined with soldiers at attention. He was led into a brightly ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

The Yellow Rose of Texas

WhatsApp Telegram

Sixty-five years ago - September 1955 - America was reeling under one of those blockbuster Number Ones, so blockbuster indeed that it toppled "Rock Around the Clock" from the top spot. What does it take to knock off rock's first great iconic anthem? A beautiful Sinatra love ballad? A showstopping Rodgers & Hammerstein eleven o'clock number? Not a chance: To see off Bill Haley, all it takes a century old folk-song, heavy on the snare drums. And next thing you know you're blasting from every radio and jukebox...

Just ahead of the thirty-ninth audio adventure in our popular series Tales for Our Time, thank you for all your kind comments, still incoming, about our thirty-eighth: The Prisoner of Windsor, a summer diversion from yours truly inverting the premise of The Prisoner of Zenda. Nancy Hawkes, a Mark Steyn Clubber from Virginia, writes: I am a First Quarter Founding Member of the MSC and I don't comment often, but I couldn't keep silent about this tale. Where to begin? I save Tales for Our Time for road trips so I can listen for long stretches. The Prisoner of Windsor was amazing. I just finished it tonight. I don't know which I liked better - the rollicking, funny, sad, sobering story, or the comical, serious, heart-warming, heart-rending ...
