In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
The week began with the hundredth anniversary of the Royal Air Force, marked by Steyn with a musical cavalcade.
~Mark's Monday Notebook examined a landmark month for murder in London and New York, NBC and NPR's grasp of Easter, and Islam and the logic of Islamo-leftie outsourcing to women and children: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to consider the contradictions between open borders for illegal immigrants and Orange Alert for US citizens. Click below to watch:
~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on immigration, offensive statuary, the deaths of South Africa's Winnie Mandela and Canada's Peter Munk, and much more. You can hear the full show here.
Clubland Q&A is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Steyn Club, see below.
~On Wednesday Mark mulled the shooting at YouTube and its perpetrator - a female vegan Iranian refugee enraged at "de-monetization" - in his column "The Grand Convergence".
~On Thursday Steyn did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", first discussing the left's plan to use credit-card companies to put the squeeze on the Second Amendment, and then addressing Hillary Clinton's claim to have ":accelerated" the #MeToo movement. Click below to watch:
Mark returned to the subject of self-defense in light of a disturbing story out of London: "An Englishman's home is his proportionately responsive castle."
~On Friday Steyn launched the latest in our series of nightly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time: Robert Louis Stevenson's enduring classic The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. You can hear Mark read Part One here, and Part Two here. Steyn Club member Fran Lavery writes:
They say a good eye can catch a masterpiece from a fake in a blink, well, to my good ear, I'm catching that this one is going straight to the top of the charts of Mark Steyn's masterful readings of all thus far. I've already reached the edge of my nerves in anticipation for the next episode.
That will air tonight, Fran - and thank you for your thumbs-up. Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful.
~Our weekend movie date found Mark celebrating the centenary of a great American actor, and the star of Sunset Boulevard, Picnic, The Wild Bunch and many more, William Holden.
