Happy Easter and Happy Passover to our quarantined readers around the world. On this Easter morn, we have a movie on the meaning and a song for the season - and an especially timely Tale for Our Time in a suddenly un-churched world: Steyn reads pertinent passages from Victor Hugo's Notre-Dame de Paris.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven socially distant self-isolated sheltered-in-place days looked to Mark:
~The week began with a moment of respite from the Coronapocalypse with Steyn in the mood for something larkier: "Yes! We Have No Bananas."
~On Monday Mark returned to the Golden EIB Microphone to guest-host America's Number One radio show (with a lotta Corona).
~Tuesday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show offered a Coronacopia of news and comment, plus a prime minister in hospital, a cardinal out of jail, the loins of Longleat and an episode of "The Hundred Years Ago Show". You can hear the full show here.
Later Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from Queen Elizabeth to Chairman Xi.
~Wednesday's Coronacentric Mark Steyn Show pondered Brain-dead Joe vs Blackface Justin, the future of the dollar, and a song for disposal of your last remains.
~On Thursday Mark remembered Linda Tripp - and the scandal she unleashed.
~Good Friday's Mark Steyn Show was a weekend Coronarama, including your Brit Wanker Copper of the Day, a Senegalese soccer supremo ...and a poem for the season. You can listen to the full show here.
~For our Saturday movie date Kathy Shaidle headed for the grassy knoll.
~Our marquee presentation this week was Steyn's latest Tale for Our Time. This tale is, alas, all too timely - Daniel Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year. Click to hear Mark read Episode Sixteen, Episode Seventeen, Episode Eighteen, Nineteen, Twenty, Twenty-One, and Episode Twenty-Two - or, for a good old binge-listen, go here.
Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. The Club is not to everyone's taste, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and, if you have a chum who's a fan of classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.
A new week at SteynOnline begins later today with our Song of the Week and the latest episode of A Journal of the Plague Year.
