Welcome to the Chinese New Year/Valentine's/Presidents' Day edition of The Mark Steyn Show - in which Mark juggles the seasonal balls and catches a couple in one hand. He, an Iowan and a Lancashire gram'pa start by fighting vainly the old ennui, before moving on to a Kaiser exclusive on The Hundred Years Ago Show, a poem for the Year of the Ox, a song for romantics, a love letter from General Washington, and some non-love letters on Nineteen Eighty-Four and rampant Sinophilia.

On Valentine's Day itself we will have a brand new Sunday Poem - because, as Steyn always says, video poetry is where the big bucks are.
