Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
The week began with Mark in Copenhagen for the tenth anniversary of the Mohammed cartoons. Both the US State Department and the UK Foreign Office advised their citizens to steer clear of Steyn. But the Danes felt differently. Here's his speech to the Danish Parliament:
There were, fortunately, no bombs or gunfire in Copenhagen, but there was some swordplay.
~On Monday our Sinatra centennial observances continued with the rhymeless raptures of "Moonlight In Vermont".
~Tuesday saw our most-read piece of the week, with Steyn riding the Refugee Express to Sweden.
~On Wednesday night, in a much appreciated column, Mark recounted his visit to the graves of two Commonwealth airmen in Malmö's Jewish cemetery. In a different kind of aerial warfare, Putin gave Obama an hour's notice to clear out of Syria.
~On Thursday Jyllands-Posten, the original publishers of the Motoons, published a big interview with Steyn on the state of the world. Meanwhile, back in America, Thursday saw another mass killing in a "gun-free zone". Mark reflected on murderers without a cause.
~On Friday our Sinatra Century songs continued with the bluesy ballad "Come Rain Or Come Shine".
~Ahead of this month's brand new Bond film, our Saturday movie date revisited Pierce Brosnan's debut as 007 in Goldeneye.
Thank you so much to our readers around the world for another great week for "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, his Hockey Stick, and their Damage to Science: Volume One. Steyn's new book is available in print, but also, for those who need it in the next 90 seconds, in Kindle and Nook. In a first for Mark, reviewer Lynne Cohen singled out his chapter titles, "written in Steyn's proverbial acerbic inflection", while Mark's old boss Conrad Black attempted to get a piece of the Mann vs Steyn defamation action by dismissing Mann as "a sleazy charlatan", and inviting him to sue. The sleazy charlatan has yet to take him up on the offer. And in another setback for Mann the Associated Press announced it will now refer to climate "deniers" as "doubters".
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
~There are other ways to support Mark's side in the upcoming Mann vs Steyn trial of the century, if you're so inclined:
You can buy a gift certificate starting at $25 (and soaring way up from there), for yourself or your friends and family. The gift certificates have no expiration date, so if, in ten years' time, your favorite nephew has a sudden burning desire for $100 worth of Mark's disco CD, it'll still be valid. On the other hand, if you want to buy a certificate and sit on it until Mark wins the case, that works, too.
The gift certificates are available online here. Alternatively, US and Canadian customers can make a telephone purchase by calling (866) 799-4500 toll free from 8am to 3pm Eastern time on weekdays.
