To all our American readers, Happy Post-Independence Day, if that's the right expression. If you're in need of a few extra fireworks this weekend, don't miss Mark on C-SPAN's Book TV today Sunday at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific. He'll be talking about the new book Climate Change: The Facts as well as the Mann vs Steyn case.
Meanwhile, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~On Tuesday Mark reflected that, when it comes to big fat Greeks and weddings, he's seen it all before.
~Wednesday was Dominion Day in Mark's native land. He marked the occasion with some thoughts on an old nation's youthful obsession, and a quintessentially Canadian song: "I like New York in June - How About You?"
~On Friday SteynOnline presented Mark's observations on Hillary Clinton's Libya problem.
Saturday was Independence Day, and Steyn offered a song for the season plus his take on a less glorious but very over-regulated Fourth. For our weekend movie date, he settled down for the inspirational tale of Apollo 13.
If you enjoyed Mark's C-SPAN appearance and want an update on Michael E Mann's lawsuit against him, please see here. The good news is that Climate Change: The Facts is back in stock at Amazon. You can also order the book, personally autographed, direct from the SteynOnline bookstore - and, if you need it in the next 90 seconds, it's out in eBook via Kindle, Nook at Barnes & Noble, or Kobo at Indigo-Chapters in Canada and around the world.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
