In case you missed it, here's the last seven days as seen by Mark:
We began the week with one of the greatest love songs of all time, "The Way You Look Tonight".
~On Monday Mark reflected on the pitiful state of America's freedoms, after Eric Holder dispatched his Justice Department goons to investigate a Fourth of July float for the crime of mocking the President. "The Outhouse of American Liberty" became our most-read piece of the week, but almost as dispiriting for where we're headed is the increased criminalization of routine parenting.
~Tuesday was a grim milestone for Steyn - the second anniversary of the 270-word blog post which fake Nobel Laureate Michael E Mann decided to sue him over. For those who've missed the first year-and-three-quarters of legal folderol, we provided a précis of the story so far. Mark continues to press to get this thing to trial and Mann on the witness stand, but in the DC Superior Court the wheels of justice barely grind at all. Thanks for continuing to support his campaign for free speech against the climate mullahs via the Steyn store.
~On Wednesday Mark addressed Israel, Gaza and the deranged levels of Jew-hatred on display in Europe.
~On Thursday, that seemingly indestructible showbiz broad Elaine Stritch took her leave, and Mark recalled one of his favorite encounters with her.
~Mark ended the week sitting in for Rush on America's Number One radio show and hosting Open-Line Friday. Much of it was devoted to the downing of the Malaysian jet over Ukraine and the erasing of the southern border by the man Steyn calls the Coyote-in-Chief.
~For our Saturday movie date, Steyn marked the tenth anniversary of Michael Moore's biggest hit, Fahrenheit 9/11.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
