This coming week Mark will be out and about promoting his new book. He's also honored to be part of an 800th birthday celebration of Magna Carta.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
The week began with an American singer singing a Canadian arrangement of a Welsh song about an English lane.
~Monday saw our most-read piece of the week, as Mark considered Taliban proverbs, lesbian bishops, and the very very very teeny teeny teeny teeny percentage of violent extremists who are extremistly violent.
~On Tuesday Steyn took the pulse of election campaigns north and south of the border, with the accent on uproar in Canada, and in America the advantages illegal immigrants bring to Electoral College apportionment.
~Wednesday was a big radio day for Mark: He started out talking gun control and the latest Tory "outrage" with John Oakley in Toronto, and later filled in for a cold-stricken Rush on America's Number One radio show. The "97 per cent consensus" on climate change came up, which gave Steyn an opportunity to plug his new book.
~On Thursday Rush was still under the weather so Mark guest-hosted for a second show, in the course of which Kevin McCarthy withdrew from the race for Speaker. More importantly, Steyn addressed the question of Cisinjuns vs Transinjuns.
~On Friday our Request of the Week pondered the decadent detachment of our ruling class as the world burns.
~On Saturday Mark celebrated a brace of Harrys: the centenary of the great trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison, and the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
It was a grim week for free speech, what with Irish university students cheering the murder of Charlie Hebdo's cartoonists and international jurists contemplating the criminalization of climate change. At the weekend, Steyn joined John Stossel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Bosch Fawstin and Kirsten Powers for a free speech special on Fox News. Here's a brief excerpt:
Thank you so much to readers around the world for another grand 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. It's a Top 250 bestseller at Amazon, and Number One on the Climatology Hit Parade, and it's just notched up its 100th review - another five-star rave:
Brilliant, very readable. Mann must be regretting having sued him as his fraudulence is on very public display.
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:
1) STEYNONLINE GIFT CERTIFICATES
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.
Aside from "A Disgrace To The Profession", he's written lots of other books, on free speech and much more. They're available individually or as part of various special offers.
3) EXCLUSIVE STEYN vs THE STICK TRIAL MERCHANDISE
Our "Steyn vs the Stick" and "Clash of Sticks" designs are available both on mousepads and coffee mugs and as T-shirts and sweat shirts.
