In case you missed it, here's the last seven days as seen by Mark:
~The week and the month began with a song for the season, of especial interest to sheep breeders.
~On Monday Mark wrote about the arrest of a suspect in the Belgian Jewish Museum murders - and the blindness, denial and stupidity of Europe's elites.
~On Tuesday Steyn guest-hosted America's Number One radio program, The Rush Limbaugh Show. Much of the three hours was devoted to the President's decision to exchange five hardcore Taliban war criminals for one American deserter. Mark contrasted Bowe Bergdahl with the Afghan war's first "confused young man", John Walker Lindh, in what became our most-read piece of the week. But he also turned his attention to the disturbing behavior of Bergdahl's father and his embrace by Obama.
~On Wednesday a friend of the Boston Marathon bombers appeared in federal court, facing 40 years in jail for an ill-timed dinner date with two terrorists. Mark was struck by the different treatment accorded to a far more ambitious aider and abetter of terrorism.
~On Friday a dwindling number of nonagenarian veterans joined the Queen, presidents Hollande and Obama and other dignitaries in Normandy to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Mark offered his own tribute to the men whose bravery and determination marked the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
~On the upcoming Mann vs Steyn trial of the century, Mark reported on Michael E Mann's "science", which has been variously described as "scanty", "sloppy" and "sh*tty" - and that's just from guys who believe in man-made global warming. Meanwhile, as Steyn noted, if your child graduated from high school this week, there has been no global warming for his entire life. All of us at SteynOnline are enormously thankful for your continuing support, via the Steyn store, for Mark's campaign against Mann's climate of fear.
~Mark ended the week with three snapshots of free speech around the world - from Britain, America and Australia. Yet his most controversial observations of the last seven days turned out to be what he thought were some unexceptional comments on disco, which were bitterly contested on the radio by Hugh Hewitt.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
