Mark Steyn

Shop-Girls, Dandies, and a Man on the Stair

WhatsApp

Welcome to the twelfth in our series Tales for Our Time, and, as I say in my introduction, this one's a corker. As I've emphasized since we launched The Mark Steyn Club last year, our regular content - all my daily commentary, cultural and geopolitical essays, our weekend movie and music features, SteynPosts and On the Town and all the rest - will always be free to everyone around the planet. But we are letting Club members in on a few experimental features which, in the event they turn out sufficiently non-incompetent, we may eventually make more widely available. Tales for Our Time is one such experiment - a series of monthly audio adventures. So far we've presented radio serializations of classic fiction by Dickens, Kipling, Conrad, ...

Topical Take

Cold War On Ice

WhatsApp

The Winter Olympics continue, and here at SteynOnline we're taking all my two-man luge gags from decades past out of mothballs. A few weeks ago, we revived my curling cracks and shedding-brush shtick. Today's piece is anthologized in The Face Of The Tiger (personally autographed copies of which are exclusively available at the SteynOnline bookstore, he pleads with an eye to the eternally forthcoming Mann vs Steyn trial - oh, and for Mark Steyn Club members, don't forget to enter your promo code at checkout to enjoy special member pricing). It was originally published exactly sixteen years ago today: A week or so before the Salt Lake games, the International Olympic Committee, as is traditional, issued an earnest plea that politics not be ...

Too Stupid to Survive (Extreme Sports Edition)

WhatsApp

As longtime patrons of SteynOnline well know, every so often I'm minded, after the latest Absurdity of the Day, to caution that "sometimes a society becomes too stupid to survive". The latest example thereof, alas, is too sad and pathetic even for my dismal catchphrase. On Monday the Attorney-General of the United States addressed the National Sheriffs Association thus: "I want to thank every sheriff in America. Since our founding, the independently elected sheriff has been the people's protector, who keeps law enforcement close to and accountable to people...

Mark spent his Valentine's afternoon with John Oakley on Toronto's AM640. First they kicked around some of the lighter topics in the news - and then, just as they moved on to the heavier stuff, the line conked out:

Seeking Meaning in the Void

WhatsApp

On Thursday evening, "Tucker Carlson Tonight" examined the carnage in Florida from various angles - the warning to the FBI that went nowhere, gun laws at home and abroad, mental health issues, etc. On the Democrats' reflexive trope, the "gun control" argument will go nowhere, and everybody knows it. In 1996 Australians owned guns at a far lower rate than Americans do, and their sense of themselves and their nation's liberties was not so intimately bound up with private gun ownership as America's is. You would have to persuade freeborn citizens fundamentally to rethink their conception of gun rights, and Dems aren't in the persuasion business - not when it's easier to sneer at tens of millions of law-abiding gun owners who not unreasonably ...
