Mark will be starting the week with Sean Hannity, coast to coast tomorrow, Monday, on Fox News at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific. And don't forget his new book is now available for exclusive pre-order.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
The week began with news that the Hillary campaign is now calling the cops on non-supporters, while the Republican establishment continues to flounder cluelessly as it struggles to deal with Donald Trump: Mark's piece on the latter proved to be our most popular piece of the week.
~Monday saw the death of Wayne Carson Thompson, who wrote "Always On My Mind" and one of Mark's favorite songs of urgency.
~Tuesday brought two other additions to the SteynOnline obituaries department: Theodore Bikel, the man who introduced Rodgers & Hammerstein's last song "Edelweiss", and E L Doctorow, the novelist who gave us in Ragtime a sprawling panorama of the dawn of the American century.
~On Wednesday Mark considered the beleaguered state of free speech, following the news that Charlie Hebdo is out of the Mohammed business. In a further setback for free speech from Steyn's native land, it's apparently now a hate crime in Canada to call the totalitarian and disgusting Alberta "Human Rights" Commission "crazy". Nonetheless, if you do think they're crazy, there's a petition you can sign.
~On Thursday Mark addressed the grimmest news of the week on the domestic front: the revelation that Planned Parenthood is harvesting babies' body parts, and the mainstream media won't even cover it: Steyn's column was our most-liked on Facebook this week. On the foreign policy front, Mark joined Congressman John Campbell to examine the Obama Administration's relaxed attitude to the Iranian nuclear program versus their hard line on the Canadian pipeline. On the other hand, Forbes thought the big news of the week was that "Iran Is Not Nazi Germany And Mark Steyn Is Not Winston Churchill".
~Friday brought things full circle: Mark started the week with the last song of Frank Sinatra's mid-life career slump and he ended it with the first song of his amazing comeback.
For our Saturday movie date, Steyn celebrated the work of Ernest Lehman, who gave us the world's all-time greatest train scene.
It was a relatively quiet week in the climate wars, save for the news that Dr John Cook, promoter of the "97% consensus" that Obama and Kerry like to quote so much, has been trying to bump it up to 99.99% by trying to pass himself off on the Internet as skeptical Czech scientist Luboš Motl. If you want an alternative to the creepy freaks of the "consensus" enforcers, try Climate Change: The Facts, which this week got a thumb's up from the Conservative Book Club. You can order Climate Change: The Facts, personally autographed by Mark, 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.
This September sees the 10th anniversary of the Danish Mohammed cartoons. Steyn will be joining the editor who commissioned them and other freespeechers at a special event in Copenhagen. If you're in the vicinity, we hope to see you there. For tickets and more information, please see here.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
