Programming note: Today, Tuesday, I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for another three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence In Broadcasting on America's Number One radio show starting at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. You can dial us up either via the iHeart Radio app or on one of over 600 stations across the fruited plain, such as our old friends at WNTK New Hampshire, where you can listen to the full show from anywhere on the planet right here.
I was also in for Rush yesterday. You can hear a few moments from Monday's broadcast here.
On today's show, we'll attend to all things Covid and Lockdown, but we'll also try to get to some of the other news - Kim Jong-un's dead-parrot routine, the media's protection of Joe Biden, and the disturbing revelations about the dirty stinking rotten corrupt FBI/DoJ's treatment of General Flynn. I played the Kim story mainly for laughs yesterday: He's observing social distancing, but he's doing it vertically so he's six feet under from his cabinet; he's rumored to be in a vegetative state (North Korea); etc. But the remarks by President Trump re Kim at last night's press conference were intriguing, and suggested that he has a heads-up on where this story's going. So it will be interesting to see if anything else emerges on that front today.
Thank you to Mr Snerdley and the team for propping me up these two days. Rush will return tomorrow at 12 noon Eastern. Stay tuned here for this week's edition of Laura's Links shortly after today's Rush, and for a brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show right here tomorrow morning. Members of The Mark Steyn Club are welcome to weigh in with their comments on any of the above. For more about the Club see here.
See you on the radio at noon Eastern - and do give me a call.
