In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
He started the week with a 75th birthday salute to a certain reindeer noted for his erubescent proboscis.
~On Monday, Mark celebrated the fact that, while America may no longer be the world's leading economic power, it's still Number One in the length of its presidential motorcade: Even if you ain't got it, flaunt it, baby!
~On Tuesday, our most-read piece of the week discussed the revelation that, after weeks of scholarly constitutional debate, Obama's unilateral rewrite of US immigration law didn't even require an executive order, only a memo, or a press release, or a maybe a Tweet...
~On Wednesday, Steyn offered a few old media notes - on The New Republic, The Detroit Free Press, and Playboy.
~On Thursday, Mark returned to The Hugh Hewitt Show to discuss the racist jokes of Hollywood liberals, and the terrorist "empathizing" of Hillary Clinton.
~Steyn ended with the week with some thoughts on fake rape, and a victim culture with too many wannabe victims and not enough victimizers.
While we're waiting to clear the latest tedious procedural hurdle in the upcoming Mann vs Steyn trial of the century, Mark has been observing the fifth anniversary of the Climategate email leaks, with some musings on the climate of corruption - oh, and also on environmentally conscious Danish hookers. If you're shopping for the climate denialist in your family this Christmas, we hope you'll consider supporting Mark's pushback against the climate mullahs by purchasing a SteynOnline gift certificate or our exclusive range of commemorative Mann vs Steyn trial merchandise. And for that special someone in your life don't forget our limited-time holiday offer: the Steyn vs the Stick Winter Warmer.
For our Saturday movie feature, Mark looked at Christmas-themed war movies and war-themed Christmas movies.
We hope you'll keep it mind some of Mark's more recent work for your loved ones this Christmas - either his new book or his new CD or both together. The [Un]documented Mark Steyn is 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.
Mark's new CD Goldfinger is available from Amazon, CD Baby, or direct from the Steyn store. Hugh Hewitt calls it "a lot of fun".
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week - but, if you can't wait, Mark's old comrades at the Speccie in London have dusted off for their Yuletide issue a Steyn classic from the archives. Mark himself will be starting the week with three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence-in-Broadcasting on The Rush Limbaugh Show, America's Number One radio broadcast, live at 12 noon Eastern tomorrow, Monday.
