Happy World Water Day. At SteynOnline we're marking the occasion with gentleman guppy Kevin Costner.
In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with Steyn reflecting on the first of two idiotic Tweets from the US State Department, "the most lavishly funded and entirely moronic foreign ministry on the planet".
~Tuesday was St Patrick's Day. We celebrated with a song for the season and the newest member of the Irish-America Hall of Fame: Hillary O'Clinton, putting the sham in shamrock. In non-Irish news, Mark also discussed Netanyahu's election victory, the intriguingly appellated Furkan Deryea, and Starbucks' decision to get its staff to talk race with their customers: "Now you'll be able to listen to your barista's views on slavery reparations as you wait twenty minutes for your Trayvonato with an extra shot. No justice, no peace, no foam."
~On Wednesday, Mark joined the great John Oakley at AM640 in Toronto to chew over Bibi and Hillary. In our most-read piece of the week, he also considered how America's friends are faring under the James Taylor Doctrine.
~On Thursday, Mark returned to The Hugh Hewitt Show in a somewhat cranky mood that made quite a bit of news, and also pondered a glimpse of the demographic future: "an Hispanic United States, an Islamized Europe and an African China."
~On Friday, our Sinatra centenary observances continued with a trip "East Of The Sun (And West Of The Moon)".
At the weekend he previewed today's French elections, offered a Motorcade Watch update, and recalled a famous diplomatic note from Moscow to London.
While we're waiting for the Mann vs Steyn trial of the century to begin, why not kill some time with the paperback edition of Climate Change: The Facts? The new must-read book on the state of the science, the policy and the politics, with contributions from Mark and many eminent scientists, is now available for pre-order from the SteynOnline bookstore - and Steyn will be more than happy to autograph it for the denier in your family! We also thank readers who've continued to support Mark's end of his latest free-speech battles via SteynOnline gift certificates and other Steyn store purchases.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
