On Wednesday I joined "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to discuss Eric Swalwell being compromised by Chi-spy Fang Fang, which sounds like an Ian Fleming honey trap even before Eric got out the black tie and shirt studs. Apparently, you're required to notify the FBI if you're a Congressman dating an asset of a hostile foreign power ...but it's on the honor system. Seriously.
One sympathizes, of course, with poor ol' Swalwell, who found himself "compromised" and like Jimmy Cagney vis Ã vis Shanghai Lil:
I learned to love her
The little devil
Was just a butterfly
But you discover
Something on the level

Much of the Internet chatter, alas, was focused on my reach-for-the-skies hair. Look, it's not complicated: There's no shows, no symphonies, no rock gigs, no ballet, no opera, no nightclubs... The last live entertainment in the western world is watching my hair grow. It grew an eighth of an inch during last night's broadcast, and at least one guy appreciated it. Enjoy it while you can: hair today, gone tomorrow.

If you prefer my coiffure in non-visual formats, I'll be back tomorrow with another edition of The Mark Steyn Show - and there's always my most recent Tale for Our Time, P G Wodehouse's Psmith, Journalist.
The Mark Steyn Show and Tales for Our Time are made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. You can find more details about our Club here - and we also have a gift membership that makes a terrific Christmas present.
