Happy Superbowl Sunday to all our American readers. We will have a Mark Steyn Club video bonus for you later this Sunday morning in which Mark discusses and reads Shelley's great poem "Ozymandias". It's nothing to do with American football, except insofar as it is about fleeting glory. Next weekend, by the way, Steyn will be speaking live in Colorado Springs. More details below.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~In further Hillary developments, on Monday Mark joined Tucker Carlson to discuss Mrs Clinton's comic timing.
~Tuesday was State of the Union day. Steyn celebrated with his traditional objections, and also marked the twentieth anniversary of an unusually memorable night at the Capitol. As for this year's speech, Mark liked the Trumpian appropriation of the word "dreamers".
~On Wednesday Steyn checked in with John Oakley on Toronto's AM640 for more State of the Union analysis, and a consideration of the Ontario Tories' leadership contest. Click below to listen:
~On Thursday Mark returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" as FISA Friday Fever mounted. Click below to watch:
~On Friday at noon in Washington the memo was released. Steyn analyzed it in what quickly became our most-read piece of the week.
~For our Saturday screen date Mark looked at an even more risible Russo-American thriller than the Mueller investigation - the Bruce Willis remake of The Jackal.
Steyn is heading to Colorado Springs this coming weekend for February's Leadership Program of the Rockies retreat. He'll be appearing with Fox Business star Kennedy, Congressman Jason Lewis, Mollie Hemingway, Art Laffer and more.

Much of our content at SteynOnline is funded by 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 the aforementioned Sunday Poem, and participation in our Clubland Q&As. You'll find more details about The Mark Steyn Club here. And, if you have a pal who'd enjoy Mark's video readings of Kipling & Co, don't forget our Steyn Club Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with a special audio edition of our Song of the Week - and continues with a brand new Clubland Q&A live around the planet on Tuesday at 4pm US Eastern Time (check local listings).
