Notwithstanding the North Korean EMP attack halfway through the broadcast plunging the nation into darkness, I did my best to illuminate the scene while guest-hosting America's Number One radio show and providing play-by-play coverage of Total Eclipse Monday. Sample:
Don't forget to keep your special glasses to hand. People think that because the sun has gone all dark it's safe to look directly at it, but it's not. Bill Clinton was told this morning, "Don't stare at the black sun." And he said, "That's just an Internet rumor from the Nineties."
Mark Steyn said a cute intern complained 2 minutes isn't very long so he told her to get out of the broom closet and go watch the eclipse.
Etc. Congressman Louie Gohmert joined me live in studio, and Dinesh D'Souza by telephone. I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone tomorrow, Tuesday, live across America for three hours at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. If you have the necessary receiving apparatus, I hope you'll dial us up - whether you're in or out of the Band of Totality.
~When I was guest-hosting for Rush recently, I took a call from Natalie from Montana who said she was saving up from her summer job for a Steyn Club membership. I was surprised and humbled by a fifteen-year-old's interest in my work, so I decided to give her a Club membership for her 16th birthday a few week ago. It got me thinking that other listeners 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.
