In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week started off with a trip back to May 1921 in an episode of The Hundred Years Ago Show in which Tulsa and Charlie Chaplin burn, Germany caves to Allied demands, West Virginia proclaims martial law, Upper Silesia revolts (again), and the United Kingdom welcomes the new polity of Northern Ireland.
~Mark's Song of the Week grabs the world by its string, telling the story of Frank Sinatra's rise from bottom to top, with a little Nat King Cole for good measure.
~For Memorial Day, we shared a special repeat of The Mark Steyn Show, by popular request. We retool our regular features – a poem, a song, Last Call, The Hundred Years Ago Show – to tell stories of battle, sacrifice and remembrance through the years, from the Civil War to the Great War to the wars without end of our own time.
~After slaving away for a week in her (kosher) link kitchen, Laura Rosen Cohen served a heaping portion of her famous links Tuesday, from Gwen Stefani's brush-off of the cancel mob to Trump's Middle East, and good news about Covid antibodies.
~Mark released a brand new episode of The Mark Steyn Show Wednesday, featuring a tale of two soundbites and civilization's greatest question – is Justin Trudeau more thoroughly penetrated by the Chinese than Eric Swalwell? – plus another edition of Mark's Mailbox and The Hundred Years Ago Show.
~On Thursday, Mark was live across the planet for another Clubland Q&A, fielding questions on Justin Trudeau's aforementioned Chinese penetration, as well as Fauci's emails and Biden at Windsor.
~Singer-songwriter Tal Bachman dusted off the classics Friday with a look at Sophocles' Oedipus Rex and the pursuit of truth.
~Saturday brought us part 15 of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade, with farewells to two servants of dark and ugly regimes, a DC lobbyist for dictators and the ChiComs' most audacious honey trap.
~Film columnist Rick McGinnis kept our weekly movie date with a screening of Mike Leigh's "deferred coming of age" film Career Girls.
A new week begins at SteynOnline later today.
This afternoon Steyn's Song of the Week takes to the airwaves on the UK's Serenade Radio, starting at 5:30pm London time, right after Sing Something Simple. For North Americans, that works out to 12:30pm Eastern or 9:30am Pacific. You can catch it by clicking on the button in the top right-hand corner here.
Tales for Our Time and Mark Steyn's Passing Parade are special productions for 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 London, Kentucky to London, Ontario to London, Kiribati, 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.
