Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with a live-performance edition of our Song of the Week - the great Patsy Gallant sings Ã‰dith Piaf. Click below to watch:
Steyn's Song of the Week and our other video content is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, For more on the Club, see below.
~Even as Mark and Patsy were discussing Piaf's "hymn to love", an evil man was gunning down worshipers at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in what would prove the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history. On Monday Steyn offered his take on the carnage in "The Triumph of Amoral Will": it was our most-read piece of the week.
~On Tuesday Mark took a quick tour of the passing scene, including the Clintons' corruption of Democrat centrism, gun control and bureaucratic cock-ups, and the craven capitulation of a too influential journal.
~Wednesday marked the first anniversary of Donald Trump's triumph in the presidential election. Steyn looked back at a thrilling night, and why it happened. Later he kept his midweek date with Tucker Carlson to ponder the latest 2016 post-mortem from Donna Brazile. Click below to watch:
~On Thursday Mark considered the latest fatheaded piffle from a no-nothing academy, this time on free speech in the Weimar Republic.
~On Friday Steyn started the day with "Fox & Friends" and continued with a full hour on "Varney & Company". Snowflake Werewolves loomed large.
~Saturday was Veterans Day in America and Remembrance Day in Canada and the Commonwealth. Mark offered a film for the season, and some thoughts from the first November 11th after September 11th. He also commented on the current Trump visit to Vietnam, and hit the iceberg with an over-extended Titanic analogy.
This coming Friday Steyn will be launching another Tale for Our Time, our nightly audio adventure of classic fiction. Tales for Our Time and much of our other content is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we're profoundly grateful. 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 not only the above-mentioned Tales and our Sunday Poem but our new newsletter The Clubbable Steyn.
