Greetings and welcome to the pre-Purim edition of Laura's Links. Yes, another Jewish holiday where we celebrate the fact that 'we won, they lost, now let's eat'. I am filing this column literally up to my elbows in flour as I make hamentashen, and my ever so delicate hand-model mom hands are getting a real workout putting together the requisite little packages of yummy things to deliver to friends via an intermediary. Said intermediary of course, is one of my children and yes, I am a fan of slave labor thanks for asking.
My gracious host Mark Steyn PBUH (Pocket squares be Upon Him, ameeeeeen, ameeeeen) has been so busy lately! He's been hunkering down in his solid granite man cave, with all his many, many Big Thoughts! I don't know the square footage of the cave, but frankly, it's got to be YUGE to have enough room for the great prophet and all of his ideas. He had so much going on this past week! He guest hosted twice for Rush Limbaugh, spoke to John Oakley (hilarious stuff), did a fantastic live Q&A, and penned another lovely Song of the Week, among other things!
Mark! If you need a change of pace, and want to party with a bunch of drunk Jews dancing around while celebrating the destruction of an ancient anti-Semitic enemy in the same location where there is a current anti-Semitic enemy, just say the word. There's still time! Call me for the secret ZOG handshake and password!
Anyway, aside from Purim preparations and Mark's big brain, I suppose there are a few other moderately interesting things happening around the world, so let's take a look at what has been percolating throughout the internet and the news cycle over the past week.
