~Speaking of TV, we'll have a new edition of The Mark Steyn Show for you this weekend. Audio-wise, for Founding Members of The Mark Steyn Club, we'll have another episode of our serialization of Conan Doyle's The Tragedy of the Korosko later tonight. And, speaking of Fox, Steyn remembers the network's founder, Roger Ailes, over in our obituaries department.
As Mark explained when we launched the Club, Founder Membership isn't for all - but it's there to ensure our content remains available for all, out there in the world - in print, audio, video, and occasionally live on stage, too. But one advantage membership brings is that you do get to enjoy free range in our Comments section. So, if you disagree with anything Mark said to Stuart, please have at it below.
