If you prefer me in non-visual formats, join me tomorrow for another audio edition of our Clubland Q&A. I'll be taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet for a full hour starting at 4pm North American Eastern Time on Tuesday afternoon. That's 9pm in London, 10pm in Berlin, 11pm in Cairo, midnight in Moscow, the wee small hours in Asia, an early Wednesday breakfast in Oz, and a slightly more convivial 9am in New Zealand. If you're not yet a Mark Steyn Club member, you can join right now and put a question to me on tomorrow's show - oh, and don't forget our limited-time Gift Membership, and our inaugural Steyn Club Cruise this September.
