Laura Rosen Cohen has been very patient, but it's getting to her:
This has got to end. I can't take it anymore.
I'm looking for signs of life, reported sightings, a lifeline, a something JUST THROW US A BONE!
**SOBS INTO HERMES SCARF***
...COME BACK, MARK STEYN, COME BACK!
That dull thud you hear is a thrown bone. After several months overseas researching a forthcoming project, Mark will be briefly interrupting his hiatus to return to the Golden EIB Microphone tomorrow, Friday, to guest-host for Rush on America's Number One radio show!
If you're in possession of the necessary receiving apparatus, we hope you'll dial him up for three hours of substitute-host-level excellence in broadcasting, either on one of 600 radio stations across the US or via iHeartRadio livestream or your Rush 24/7 subscription. It all starts live across America at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific - and don't forget Friday is Open Line Friday, which means you can call Mark and talk about whatever you want to talk about - Hillary's pneumonia, Trump's maternity-leave plan, Fijian rugby, Sri Lankan cricket, whatever's uppermost in your mind Mark will be happy to chew over with you.
~Throughout Mark's absence, there have been a steady stream of Tweets and emails like this one:
Reading @MarkSteynOnline's 2006 book, America Alone & amazed at how precisely correct his predictions have been.
And this one:
All these attacks from radical Islam make "America Alone" by @MarkSteynOnline look like Nostradamus. Amazing.
And one more:
Have you ever read America Alone by @MarkSteynOnline ? It was written in 2006. Basically everything he predicted largely came true
If you'd read Mark's bestseller ten years ago, the grim events of the last three months - from Orlando to Nice to Munich and beyond - would not have surprised you: in many ways, Europe 2016 has been the Summer of America Alone. The book is still available - and, if you order it direct from the SteynOnline bookstore in paperback or hardback, Mark will be pleased to autograph it to you as soon as he's off the air after Rush.
As for the state of America this turbulent election season, let's not forget this Tweet:
~If you've missed Mark's entry into the overcrowded cat-video market, here it is - for every put-upon guy scrunched up at the end of the sofa:
That's Mark with Tony-nominated actress Marla Schaffel and "She Only Talks That Way To The Cat" from his cat album Feline Groovy - available at iTunes, where it has a four-and-a-half star rating, and at Amazon, where it's stacked up a ton of five-star reviews, including this one from Kathy headlined simply "Love It!"
I bought it for my husband's birthday. BIG HIT! And he loves this guy also. When you listen to Mark do his version of Cat Scratch Fever, you cannot help but smile big!!! Entire CD is great. Helps if you love cats too. :D
And you'll be smiling big, too. Mark looks forward to your company on the radio this Friday.
