In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~He began the week by marking the grand if hilariously fractious opening of the Canadian Mausoleum of Human Rights.
~On Monday, notwithstanding the fall-out from the Scottish referendum, Mark took the high road and celebrated "Loch Lomond".
~For much of the early part of the week Mark was busy with sad family matters overseas and so SteynOnline was not quite so busy as usual. However, he will be back in America in plenty of time for An Evening With Mark Steyn to be hosted by the Center of the American Experiment in Minnesota. If you'd like to join Steyn live at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis on October 9th, you can find more details and book tickets here.
~Michael E Mann, the world's most un-exonerated fake Nobel Laureate, was also on stage last week. In what became our most-read piece of the week, Mark looked at the Big Climate enforcer's improved comic timing, and his attempt to recover from the disasters of the previous week, including his hashtag debacle, #AskDrMann.
~On Thursday, a 54-year-old female employee at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma was beheaded by a Muslim convert who believes in stoning for women. But don't worry, it's - all together now - nothing to do with Islam.
~Mark rounded out the week in a kinda sorta classical vein by marking the centenary of Bob Wright, co-author of shows like Kismet and songs like "Stranger In Paradise", "Baubles, Bangles And Beads" and many others - with a bit of help from composing partners such as Borodin, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.
~We continue to prepare for the upcoming Mann vs Steyn trial of the century, and to #AskDrMann to get on with discovery and deposition. Mark is enormously grateful to readers around the world for their ongoing support for his pushback against the climate mullahs via the Steyn store.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
