In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week's big story broke at week's end: the President and Mrs Trump have tested positive for Covid-19. Late on Friday afternoon the commander-in-chief, having shown "mild" symptoms, was helicoptered to Walter Reed military hospital. Mark joined Tucker Carlson to react to the day's developments.

~The week began with a blockbuster hit from the Lone Star State, and the conclusion of Steyn's latest Tale for our Time for election season - Franchise by Isaac Asimov. You can listen to him read the first episode here, and the conclusion of the story here.
Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. 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.
~Mark's Monday Notebook considered Joe Biden's world-record-breaking expectation lowering, as well as traffic congestion and demographic delusions.
~Tuesday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show found Mark covering the bloodlust on the streets, attempting to make sense of ChiCom-19's "grim milestone", and ODing on Vitamin D. He also presented another episode of The Hundred Years Ago Show - and took his time undressing the appeal of a certain Frenchwoman.
Later on Tuesday Mark made a brief return to "live blogging" to cover the first presidential debate.
~On Wednesday Steyn offered more debate analysis on a grim morning after: It was our most read piece of the week.
Later he swung by the Number One primetime show in America, "Tucker Carlson Tonight", to suggest some debate-technique modifications for the second showdown:
Also on Wednesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet, from crying uncle on Uncle Ben to self-enrichment through #BLM.
~Thursday's Topical Take looked back to the glory days of Bush vs Gore.
~On Friday's weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show Mark presented more analysis of the Trump Covid diagnosis, as well as old-school corrupt Philly Democrats back in the saddle, a bipartisan presidential commission on who gets to run, and a silent near-majority in Vermont - plus Steyn on NPR, turnout models then and now ...and a jolly song, because we all need it to round out the week.
Later on Friday he returned to TV to address the left's death wishes for the President.
~For our weekend movie date, Kathy Shaidle walked The Thin Blue Line.
