Happy Memorial Day weekend to all our American readers. In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
The week began with the fall of Ramadi to the Islamic State. Steyn's column on the subject was our most-read piece of the week: "Nothing Another 42,000 Air Strikes Can't Fix."
~On Monday, Mark continued our Sinatra centenary celebrations with a look at the man who made Frank Sinatra a conductor: Alec Wilder.
~On Tuesday, Steyn wrote about the latest revelations of lifelong Clinton family retainer George Stephanopoulos and later chewed things over with Sean Hannity on Fox News, proposing a new Jeff Foxworthy-style game show for Hillary to host: "Are You Dumber Than A Box Of Rocks?"
~Wednesday was the sixth annual Everybody Draw Mohammed day. Mark reflected on the fast shrinking ranks of cartoonists in a much-read piece called "There Is No More Molly. Or Luz."
~Notwithstanding the advance of Isis and the nuclearization of Iran, President Obama explained to the graduating class of the Coast Guard Academy that America's biggest national security threat is "climate change". On Thursday Steyn told Hugh Hewitt on the radio, "This guy is bonkers!"
~On Friday Mark ended the week by asking: What's the connection between Frank Sinatra, Mickey Rooney and William Shakespeare?
~For his weekend column, he looked at one of the newly released Clinton emails, which reveals that the Secretary of State didn't even know the name of the slain Libyan ambassador she mourned so ostentatiously. And for our Saturday movie date he revisited a mid-Nineties flurry of strangely Hillaryphobic Hollywood blockbusters.
Don't miss your chance to see Mark live on stage in Washington, DC, which is coincidentally the jurisdiction in which Big Climate enforcer Michael E Mann is suing him. On June 11th and 12th, he'll be joining all the A-list deniers for the Heartland Institute's 10th International Conference on Climate Change. Steyn and some of his co-authors will be discussing the themes of their brand new book Climate Change: The Facts. For more information on the conference, see here.
The book, meanwhile, is available at Amazon and elsewhere, and already the Number One Environmental Policy bestseller - although Dr Mann's new book is hard on our heels and rocketing up the Hit Parade at #185,472. Don't forget, you can always order Climate Change: The Facts direct from the SteynOnline bookstore - and get it personally autographed by Mark.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with a song for the season.
