Happy Lockdown Sunday to all shelterers in place. Tomorrow Steyn will be starting the week back behind the Golden EIB Microphone on America's Number One radio show.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven socially distant self-quarantined state-ordered sequestered-without-end days looked to Mark:
~The week began with the first ever Corona-lockdown all-request audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week, and also with the conclusion of our marquee presentation - the latest in Mark's Tales for Our Time. This tale is, alas, all too timely - Daniel Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year, as in lessons for 2020 from 1665. To hear Mark read the final episode click here - or, for a good old binge-listen right from the start, go here.
~Monday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show offered a Coronacopia of news and comment, plus Your Monday Mohammed, another Brit Wanker Copper, and Canada's worst mass murder in living memory. You can hear the full show here.
~On Tuesday Mark shared some thoughts on the beleaguered Virgin, Richard Branson, and his Covid-afflicted corporations. It was our most read piece of the week.
Later Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from Captain Tom's centenarian marathon to Ilhan Omar's tax-deductible husband.
~Wednesday's Coronacentric Mark Steyn Show looked at Politburo kowtowing, camel parking, blasphemous comforting, and castle-climbing to the stars.
~On St George's Day Mark pondered Englishness and Britishness, and celebrated a milestone issue of the oldest continuously published magazine in the English language.
~Friday's Mark Steyn Show was a weekend Coronarama, including a little Shakespeare for the season, Ritz-Carlton welfare queens and a star-studded retirement home. You can listen to the full show here. Friday was also Anzac Day, and Mark was very moved to be quoted by a young lady from St Andrew's College in New Zealand.
~For your weekend video entertainment, Steyn re-aired an in-depth big-picture interview from exactly ten years ago today. How does it hold up? Click below to watch:
~For our Saturday movie date Kathy Shaidle took refuge in the mid-season clip show.
The Mark Steyn Show and other SteynOnline content 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 continues on Monday at noon Eastern with Mark back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence in Broadcasting.
