A Happy Labor Day or Labour Day weekend, according to taste, to our American and Canadian readers. In case you missed it, here's the last seven days as seen by Mark:
We began the week with a rollicking song for the 75th anniversary of The Wizard Of Oz.
~Our Monday Mark looked at the latest US corporation to vote with its feet, as Burger King declines to have it Obama's way and decamps to Canada to "have it your eh?".
~On Tuesday Steyn checked in with Hannity on Fox News to discuss the President's penetrating insight that ISIS was merely the junior varsity team of jihad. As Mark saw it, the only JV player on the geopolitical court is Obama.
~On Wednesday, in what became our most-read piece of the week, we noted that the peer-reviewed climate science has now caught up with Steyn, and a throwaway observation he made five years ago. With the Mann vs Steyn trial of the century approaching, Mark is very grateful to all who've helped support his pushback against the increasingly isolated Big Climate alarmists via the Steyn store. He is preparing to depose self-conferred Nobel Laureate Michael Mann.
~On Thursday, Steyn returned to The Hugh Hewitt Show to discuss the sandy-suited Obama's disarming disclosure that the United States has no strategy.
~On Friday, Mark considered one of the most horrifying stories of the week - the failure and collusion of politicians, police and child "protection" agencies in the sexual "grooming" of 1,400 girls by Muslim rape gangs in the Yorkshire town of Rotherham.
~To end the week, Mark paid tribute to the great actor (of Brighton Rock and Jurassic Park) and director (of Gandhi and A Bridge Too Far) Richard Attenborough.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week. After Labor Day, Mark returns to the Golden EIB Microphone to guest-host for Rush on America's Number One radio show, live coast to coast on Tuesday and Wednesday.
