In case you missed it, here's the last seven days as seen by Mark:
~He kicked things off with a 40th anniversary celebration of Abba. It turned out to herald a rather Swedish week. The eminent Swedish climatologist Lennart Bengtsson joined Nigel Lawson's skeptic foundation. Then he unjoined it, after the climate mullahs piled on. And on...
~On Monday, Mark considered Britain's answer to Donald Sterling - a disabled BBC host who in an effort to avoid playing an Islamophobic record played a racist one covered by a pedophile.
~Mark's #BringBackOurBalls response to the First Lady's hashtag for the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls continued to rumble on. He discussed it on television and radio, first on Tuesday's Hannity, and then with John Oakley in Toronto.
~On Wednesday, after a two-year hiatus, the SteynOnline Request of the Week returned, as part of Mark's ongoiing fundraising efforts.
~It was a bad week for lovers of liberty in America: Steyn pondered the nine-year-old girl handcuffed and fingerprinted by two Portland police officers, and the IRS' degeneration into the enforcement wing of the Democratic Party; and on Thursday, he joined Hugh Hewitt on air to talk about the latest Obama scandal - at the Veterans Administration.
~On Friday, Mark coped with the news that the Village People are racist by drowning his sorrows in camel's urine.
~Our most-read piece of the week was Steyn's update on the fake Nobel Laureate and global warm-monger who's suing him for defamation: "Michael E Mann: Liar, Cheat, Falsifier and Fraud." As you can tell, with the trial approaching, Mark is being far more measured and circumspect about what he says about Dr Mann in public.
~Mark ended the week with an audio special celebrating the 60th anniversary of The Pajama Game, and with some metaphorical musings on the return of Godzilla.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
