Programming note: Please join me tonight, Wednesday, for a full hour of guest-host-level semi-professionalism as I sit in for Tucker Carlson on Fox News, live across America at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific - with a rerun at midnight Eastern. Lots of breaking news today, so I hope you'll dial us up if you're in the presence of the receiving apparatus.
Yesterday evening the news came that Barbara Bush had died at the age of 92. She was tough, arch and perceptive - but she was also shrewd enough to know how much of that to display or dial back a notch in her role as First Lady. Today I joined Steve, Ainsley and Brian on "Fox & Friends" to talk about Mrs Bush. Alas, James Comey also raised his tieless neck. Click below to watch:
As I said, spare a thought this morning for George Bush Sr on the first day in three-quarters of a century without the great love of his life.
There'll be more to say about Mrs Bush and Comey, the SouthWest flight and Mike Pompeo's meeting with Kim Jong-Un and all the rest of the day's news, on tonight's show live across America.
If "Fox & Friends" and "Tucker" aren't enough, there's another half-hour of me on screen, addressing the British state's war on cutlery and garden tools in a brand new SteynPost. It's an absurd glimpse of a critical issue, and I'm pleased to say it's ramping up a lot of comments.
SteynPosts is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. We have fun in The Mark Steyn Club: for more info, please see here. And, if you know of a wee lad or lassie of a Steynian bent, there's always the perfect birthday present - a Steyn Club Gift Membership.
See you on the telly at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific - with a rerun for West Coast types at midnight Eastern/9pm Pacific.
