In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~Over the course of the week Mark continued his audio serialization of The Prisoner of Windsor, his contemporary inversion of Anthony Hope's The Prisoner of Zenda. All the episodes of this newest Tale for our Time can be found here, along with all previous Tales.
~Mark's week started with a look at the Canadian song that holds the honor â€“ erm, honour â€“ of being the first ever Billboard Number One hit, Ruth Lowe's "I'll Never Smile Again."
~On Monday, Mark wrote about the late baroness and "Queen of Crime" P D James on what would have been the author's 100th birthday.
~The Mark Steyn Show returned Tuesday with the latest from the Summer of Stupid, plus musings on Campaign 2020, Gandhi and Garvey, Hugh Hefner and Joni Mitchell, and much more.
~On Wednesday, Laura Rosen Cohen featured a new form of privilege â€“ wealthy thoughts â€“ plus a Tik Tok exodus and a heavily-litigated joke in the Deranged Dominion.
~Singer-songwriter and SteynOnline guest columnist Tal Bachman wrote about the world's best key lime pie Thursday, and a tale of the little guy versus the corporations with some Machiavellian tactics for good measure.
~Friday's momentous 50th edition of The Mark Steyn Show was an audio kaleidoscope of past vignettes ranging from Covid to the canceled and everything in between.
~With back to school season approaching (sort of, depending where you live), our Saturday movie date with Kathy Shaidle featured a deep dive into the macabre cinematic subgenre, the Blow Up Your School category of film.
Tales for Our Time and The Mark Steyn Show are made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. The Mark Steyn 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 tonight with our Song of the Week.
