In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with Steyn celebrating Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb and the greatest love song ever written about an employee of the utility company.
~On Sunday night Mark joined Jesse Watters to chew over North Korea on "Watters' World", but, in a fast-moving news cycle, by Monday the American media had entirely forgotten Kim Jong-un and were in a frenzy over President Trump's reaction to events in Charlottesville. Steyn discussed some of the questions arising from the Virginia protests with John Oakley on the radio. Click below to listen:
Later he mulled another critical aspect with Tucker Carlson on Fox News - that less speech leads to more violence.
~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet. Topics ranged from Confederate statuary to "Jeeves & Wooster". There were so many good questions that Steyn saved some of the ones he didn't get to for a video edition of Mark's Mailbox. Click below to watch:
Mark's Mailbox and The Mark Steyn Show are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see below.
~Thursday saw yet another Islamic terrorist attack in Europe, this time in Barcelona. Mark revisited his thoughts from America Alone on the Madrid train bombing: it was our most-read piece of the week.
~On Friday Steve Bannon became the latest member of the President's inner circle to be bounced from the White House. Steyn explored Trump sans Bannon, and Chelsea Clinton's Satanic metaphor, live across America on Fox News.
~Saturday was the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid. The bulk of Mark's conversation with the screenwriter Lionel Chetwynd was devoted to Chetwynd's own connection to Dieppe - and what happened when he pitched the story of that operation to Hollywood. Click below to watch:
For our weekend movie date, Steyn marked National Aviation Day with Catch Me If You Can.
Due to an improbable sales surge, the CD of Mark's occasionally blockbusterish Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats temporarily sold out at Amazon. It's now back in stock - and with some brand new five-star reviews to accompany it. We like this one from Veronica McNamara:
Mark Steyn + Cats - --what's not to like. This was a gift to my sister and her husband. They loved it!! Meow!!!
Thank you, Veronica. Yes, indeed: What's not to like?
All of our content at SteynOnline is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that. But we are providing Club members with a few extras, including our new newsletter, The Clubbable Steyn. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see here - and don't forget our new gift membership. While guest-hosting The Rush Limbaugh Show recently, Mark took a call from 15-year-old Natalie from Montana who said she was saving up from her summer job for a Steyn Club membership. Mark was surprised and humbled by this young lady's interest in his work, so he decided to give her a Club membership for her 16th birthday, and it got him thinking that other readers might also have friends or family members who'd appreciate a Steyn Club gift membership. So here it is.
You can order it now and have it delivered instantly or on a special day, such as a birthday or anniversary. Or you can print out our personalized welcome message - perfect for tucking inside a greeting card. If you're a current Steyn Club member yourself, don't forget to log-in first to enjoy special Club pricing on our gift memberships.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week - and with Mark back behind the Golden EIB Microphone on America's Number One radio show, live tomorrow, Monday, at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. We hope you'll dial him up, either on one of 600 Rush affiliate stations across the US or via iHeartRadio livestream.
