In case you missed it, here's the last seven days as seen by Mark:
~He started the week with a song for the Oscars, and a celebration of his own "rapturously received" performance in Ottawa.
~On Monday Mark noted fraudulent Nobel Laureate Michael E Mann's latest pitiful effort to re-promote himself as a Nobel Prize winner. The Nobel Institute has said he isn't, and the actual winner has told him to cease and desist. But, fortunately for the Nobel fantasist, Mann-child Tony Palmeri is still falling for it.
~On Tuesday Mark reported from Toronto, where he spent all week in court for what was the de facto appeal by Sole Surviving Sock Puppet Khurrum Awan of the three "human rights" complaints filed over Steyn's 2006 Maclean's cover story. Mr Awan is now suing Ezra Levant for calling him an anti-semite, and, when confronted with the well-aired views of his boss Mohammed Elmasry and the organization he himself served as youth president, Khurrum confessed to be utterly flabbergasted by all the Jew-hate going on right under his nose. His ability to keep a straight face grew more impressive as the week wore on.
~On Wednesday Mark discussed the Pelletier case in Boston in what became our most read post of the week, "The Gag Order Heard Round The World".
~Mark started Thursday bright and early, talking free speech and foreign policy with Toronto's Number One morning man. He did not sing "Sometimes When We Touch", though it provided a kind of theme for the week.
~On Friday he turned his attention to the big news of the week, the dearth of sufficiently Canadian porn.
~Steyn's weekend column expanded for Americans on a theme he'd touched on in his Canadian speech: culture trumps politics. Our climate-change story of the week raised the grim specter of a world with rampant ADHD and no guacamole, and it was a relief to put such cares aside for the SteynOnline Saturday-night movie, Hitchcock's Vertigo.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week. On Monday join Mark for three hours of guest-host-level Excellence in Broadcasting live from Ice Station EIB on America's Number One radio show.
