In case you missed it, here's the last seven days as seen by Mark:
We kicked things off with an Israeli Europop classic from the Sixties, and then, in the wake of both Gaza and the downing of the Malaysian jet, looked at some of the more somber ties that bind Europe and the Jewish state.
~On Monday Steyn marked the passing of a great American actor, James Garner.
~Tuesday saw two contradictory court decisions on Obamacare, leaving it either holed beneath the waterline, or staggering on even more incoherently. Who knows?
~On Wednesday Mark considered John Kerry's pointless exercise in "shuttle diplomacy" and concluded that, in the Middle East, he was the physical presence of American absence.
~On Thursday Steyn appeared on The Hugh Hewitt Show and provided a brisk overview of current issues from Vladimir Putin's latest provocations to Bill Clinton's latest mistresses.
~On Friday Mark contrasted the express check-in for gangbangers at the southern border with the disgraceful treatment of a troop of boy scouts at the northern border. American liberty is dying in a very ugly fashion.
~Our most popular piece of the week was without question Mark's column on the flight to freedom of Meriam Ibrahim- no thanks to President Fundraiser or Secretary Windsurfer.
~To mark the one hundredth anniversary of the start of the Great War, SteynOnline presented a weekend audio special celebrating the British Tommies' favorite sentimental ballad from that conflict.
It was, as they say, all quiet on the warmin' front, as far as the upcoming Mann vs Steyn trial of the century is concerned. As we prepare for trial, thanks again to readers around the world for supporting Mark's pushback against Michael Mann and his fellow Big Climate enforcers via the Steyn store. We're very grateful.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week. On Monday he'll be swinging by The Dennis Miller Show.
