In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
He started the week with a celebration of the only Number One song written in the presence of a dead body.
~On Monday, Steyn wondered why President Obama can't use social media as effectively as a bunch of Islamic State head-hackers.
~Mark is still in book-promoting mode for his latest bestseller The [Un]documented Mark Steyn. Early in the week, he presented a couple of wide-ranging interviews on everything from the dessertification of tea to a German lingerie ad's contribution to civilizational collapse.
~On Wednesday, Mark looked at the accelerating abandonment of free speech by the supposedly educated class in what became our most read piece of the week: "A world stripped of Contraries."
~On Thursday, Steyn addressed the beheading of another US citizen, and the President's disgraceful response to it.
~The big news at the end of the week was, in America, President Obama's proclamation of himself as a one-man legislative branch and, in Britain, that UKIP had won the Rochester & Strood by-election. Mark explained why the two events are part of the same story.
To mark the passing of director Mike Nichols, Steyn's Saturday movie date was a limousine-liberal valentine to Bill Clinton.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
Mark will be on the radio later this Thanksgiving week, and, just to sour his pumpkin pie, he'll be in Washington on Tuesday morning at the DC Court of Appeals for oral arguments in his co-defendants' case against fraudulent climate scientist and big-screen bad guy Michael E Mann. After two years in the choked toilet of DC justice, Mark hopes his own trial will proceed shortly thereafter. If you're in the vicinity of the courthouse, do swing by and say hello. If not, we hope you'll consider supporting Steyn's pushback against the Mannatollah and his fellow climate mullahs by considering a SteynOnline gift certificate or a book or CD from the Steyn store for your loved one this holiday season.
As for Mark's latest hit, The [Un]documented Mark Steyn continues to jostle with Tina Fey on the New York Times bestseller charts. It's available in America from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million, not to mention Costco, and from Indigo-Chapters, Amazon and McNally-Robinson in Canada. Or, for instant gratification, get it in eBook - in Kindle, Kobo, Nook and iBooks.And, wherever you are on the planet, we're happy to ship you a personally autographed copy direct from the SteynOnline bookstore.
