When Normal is Insufficient

WhatsApp

My old boss Boris Johnson has been fortunate, as Donald Trump was in 2016, in his enemies. Labour and the Liberal Democrats and the various Celtic nationalists are all wasting their time going on about the "racist" and "homophobic" things he's said or written. By "racist", they mean he views the burqa as do the vast majority of those who aren't banged up in one. As for "homophobia", my memory is that during his Spectator days he used to get lunch at a gay sandwich bar called The Butty Boys, which I recall he spoke very highly of. If they're still in business, perhaps an endorsement might help. Be that as it may, watching some BBC show over the weekend, I caught a glimpse of (I think) The Observer's front page: the lead was a midnight ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

The Man That Got Away

WhatsApp

This weekend we're spending some time with Judy Garland, who half-a-century ago - June 22nd 1969 - was found dead in the bathroom of her rented London mews house. We're focusing on late Judy not the child star phase, so, if you're expecting "Over the Rainbow", you can find my thoughts on that song here. We started with what Jonathan Last called my "beautiful, funny, sad" essay on the third Mr Judy Garland, Sid Luft. To close out the weekend here's the story of what became, as "Over the Rainbow" was to her youth, the great anthem of the mature years: It's a smokey poky joint after closing, chairs upturned on tables. But the musicians are still around, and an aspiring singer, enjoined by the pianist to "Take it, honey, c'mon...", rises from ...

A Clubman's Notes

A Peevish Dandy as Insidious Viper

WhatsApp

Welcome to the latest installment of our current Tale for Our Time - Erskine Childers' hugely influential bestselling thriller of The Riddle of the Sands. In two years of audio adventures, we have never presented a book that has so divided listeners. Following Mark Steyn Club member Eric Elsam's dismissal of this yarn as the biggest stinker in the history of stinkers, from Colorado Paul Cathey protests: Just goes to show, 'One man's meat. . .' etc. I have been savoring this read as a a sumptuous meal. Childers' exquisite use of the English language alone, if this were nothing more than a travelogue, makes it worth, and doubly worth, the investment of time. I compare the refreshment of it to emerging from a desert of trite cliches, ...
