A Happy Australia Day to all our readers Down Under. Mark is honored to be part of a new book put together by the Aussie IPA called Climate Change: The Facts. It's available in Kindle at Amazon outlets worldwide, as well as in Kobo and in Nook at Barnes & Noble.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
The week began - as so often in the western world these days - with your Monday-morning Beheading of the Day.
~Also on Monday, Mark continued his Sinatra Century countdown with "After You've Gone".
~Tuesday was the State of the Union, in which Obama talked about community college and climate change as the world burned. Yemen, last year's SOTU foreign-policy success story, is now this year's first failed state of the New Year.
~On Thursday, Steyn discussed Hillary Clinton's visit to Saskatchewan, accompanied by 65 US Secret Service agents.
~It was a Billy Crystal week: The actor and comedian accidentally let slip that he was tired of having gay sex scenes shoved in his face, but he doesn't mind having Frank Sinatra shoved in his face, not when he's singing "It Had To Be You".
With Clint's American Sniper a big hit in theaters, Mark's Saturday movie date revisited an acclaimed Eastwood film from a decade ago, Mystic River.
Steyn ended the week with another rave review for his new book. He'll be discussing it live on stage in Toronto this Wednesday at 7pm, in conversation with Heather Reisman at Indigo's flagship bookstore at Bay and Bloor. Admission is free, but first come, first served. For more details on the event, see here.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
