In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
The week began with the 100th anniversary, to the day, of Steyn's favorite ballad from the Great War, lovingly recreated by Mark and his friend Monique Fauteux in a Song of the Week audio special.
~On Monday Steyn offered a preview of coming attractions. Click below to watch. You know you want to:

~On Tuesday Mark noted a particularly sad story of yet more collateral damage from Angela Merkel's embrace of national suicide. But don't worry, according to Canada's Globe And Mail, it's just another "urban myth".
~At midweek Steyn was on the radio talking Trump, Nazi hipsters, and bootlegged bûches de Noël. But Wednesday was also the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and Mark chanced to begin the show at more or less the precise moment, three-quarters of a century ago, that the warplanes made their presence known. He conjured the scene as two privates on a northern bluff first noticed the spike on the oscilloscope.
~On Thursday John Glenn, the first American in orbit, departed for the stars. Steyn looked back half-a-century and pondered the abandoned frontier.
~For our weekend movie date, Mark was still in interstellar mode, with a futuristic vision of a land with no future.
If you're still stumped for that perfect present on December 25th, we have some great Christmas gift ideas over at the Steyn store. Mark and Jessica's Christmas album is sure, as the title promises, to make your spirits bright. We like this latest five-star Amazon review from Linda V:
A lovely Christmas CD, delightfully whimsical!
We like to think that it's also whimsically delightful, according to taste.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
