Programming note: Today, Tuesday, I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence In Broadcasting sitting in for Rush on America's Number One radio show. The fun starts at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. Hope you'll dial us up either via the iHeart Radio app or on one of over 600 stations across the fruited plain.

This Thursday I'll be live in Burlington, Vermont for the Ethan Allen Institute's 25th birthday bash. It should be a grand night, and, if you're minded to attend, there's a 15 per cent discount if you enter the promo code EAIMARK. More details here - or by emailing here. A couple of weeks later, and speaking of Rush, I'll be joining Mr Snerdley on stage in Florida on May 4th. It will be like a "Rush Limbaugh Show" roadshow (well, except for Rush...) Hope to see you at one or other of those events, according to geographical proximity.
We have some special observances planned for the first anniversary of The Mark Steyn Club, so, if you've been thinking about signing up, you can find more details about the Club here - and, if you've a chum who'd enjoy our audio fiction, video poetry and much more, don't forget our limited-time Gift Membership.
See you on the radio in a couple of hours - and do give me a call.
