On Wednesday morning Mark starts the day with one of his favorite radio hosts north or south of the border - John Oakley, live on Toronto's AM640 at 8.30am Eastern. If you're near a wireless receiver, we hope you'll dial him up.
~Mark's other favorite morning man is the great Alan Jones in Sydney. Alan also has a TV show on Sky News Australia, and, as part of a riveting conversation with former Labor leader Mark Latham, just quoted Steyn's ever lengthening laundry list of areas where free speech no longer applies:
The best part about the Audiobook version is the reader. I'm listening to a few other audiobooks currently voiced by what appear to be professional readers and they're kind of ... boring. Mark Steyn has fun doing Mark Steyn and it makes a much more entertaining listen!
The [Un]documented Mark Steyn is a Top Five bestseller on the political humor hit parade, so apparently it's not just Mark having fun. We hope you'll consider it for your next long-haul flight or car journey.
~Steyn's ongoing battle with climate mullah Michael E Mann recently made the papers in Mark's backyard of New Hampshire. Tom McLaughlin's Conway Daily Sun column on campus craziness includes this passing reference:
I also look forward to Mark Steyn's day in court, the legal preliminaries for which have dragged on for almost five years. Penn State University climatologist Michael Mann, author of the infamous hockey-stick graph purporting to demonstrate anthropogenic global warming, has sued Steyn for defamation after he accused Mann of fraud. Steyn refused to apologize and wants a trial to further expose Mann's specious research.
That was too much for Mann, who promptly wrote to the Sun:
An individual named Tom McLaughlin did a tremendous disservice to your readership by spreading falsehoods about the topic of human-caused climate change, and about my scientific work specifically, in his misguided recent commentary...
We like the exquisite condescension of that opening paragraph: "An individual named Tom McLaughlin" - as opposed to (as Mann signs himself) a "distinguished professor of atmospheric science", not to mention a fake Nobel Laureate. We can't have mere "individuals" weighing in on matters of public policy, can we?
(As for Tom Mclaughlin, he may be no more than "an individual", but he provided one of Hillary Clinton's toughest moments on the campaign trail to date.)
