Spare a thought for our many Florida readers this Sunday morning as Irma makes landfall. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with Steyn's musical postscript to the 20th anniversary of Diana's death, which is also oddly appropriate to a state waking up to hurricanes and power outages: "Candle in the Wind."
~On Labor Day/Labour Day Mark considered the future that awaits too much of America and the west: a world without work.
~Tuesday's SteynPost featured Mark's exploration of some of the more obvious internal contradictions of multiculturalism. Click below to watch:
SteynPosts and The Mark Steyn Show are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see below.
~On Wednesday, Mark's impatience with the fatuous characterization of illegal aliens as "Dreamers" finally snapped. "Dreams, Delusions and Duplicity" was our most-read piece of the week.
~On Thursday Steyn joined Steve, Ainsley and Pete on the curvy couch at "Fox & Friends" for a round-up of current news. Click below to watch:
Mark had more to say about Hillary's ongoing blame game with Tucker Carlson the night before.
~On Friday Steyn pitched in for the hurricane-afflicted Rush and guest-hosted America's Number One radio show. Elsewhere, Mark's guest-hosting was not quite so boffo. He hosted Thursday's episode of "The Fox News Specialists" and they liked it so much on Friday they canceled the show. Unbeknownst to Eboni, Mark or Kat, this proved to be the last three minutes of the entire series:
The turbulence roiling Fox News took a tragic turn on Friday when, a few hours after the show's suspended host Eric Bolling was let go, his son was found dead.
~For our Saturday movie date, Mark looked ahead to Monday's fifth anniversary of the Benghazi attacks with the film 13 Hours.
~All week we continued the latest in our series of audio adventures, Tales for our Time: This time Steyn's reading Joseph Conrad's classic story of a protean terrorist cell in the heart of the west, The Secret Agent. Mark Steyn Club Founding Member Thomas Travis Young writes:
Your series is enlightening- I did not appreciate Conrad previously.
On October 2nd Steyn returns to Minneapolis for an evening with the Center of the American Experiment, live at the Guthrie Theatre. More details here.
