It's the Christmas season at SteynOnline and we have not only a slew of Steynamite Christmas specials and a classic festive CD but a couple of extra-special gift suggestions, such as two on the aisle for the first ever Dennis Miller/Mark Steyn tour, or a stateroom with your loved one's name on it for the second Mark Steyn Club Cruise.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with a song to put a pep in your step: "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah."
~Mark's Monday Notebook considered the bollardization of Christmas, a Hokey-Cokey Brexit, and the UN's plan to move the world into your rec room: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to ponder a leftie's case against open borders. Click below to watch:
~On Tuesday Mark hosted another edition of Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on everything from the Honduran caravan and the Brexit betrayal to the shriveled horizons of the establishment right. To hear the full show, click here.
~On Wednesday Mark checked in with John Oakley at Global News Radio 640 to gloat over Bill and Hillary's big night out in Toronto, and bemoan the big chill on free speech. Click below to listen:
~On Thursday Steyn returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to ponder Al Gore's attempt to re-start his doomsday clock:
~On Friday Mark made his debut appearance with Mighty Mike Faust on WEEU for a wide-ranging conversation, and to herald the launch of the first ever Dennis Miller/Mark Steyn tour in Reading, Pennyslvania:
Tickets for the Miller/Steyn night in Reading are available here or in person at the Weidenhammer Box Office at the Santander Arena - or by telephone at 1-800-745-3000.
~Steyn's Weekend Notebook mused on the social justice warriors taking the tire-iron to Rudolph's red nose, and the passing of George H W Bush. For our Saturday movie date he buttered up Bertolucci with Last Tango in Paris.
Our marquee presentation was the latest nightly audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - Mark's reading of Baroness Orczy's classic tale of France's Reign of Terror, The Scarlet Pimpernel. Click for Part Seventeen, Part Eighteen, Part Nineteen, Twenty, Twenty-One, Twenty-Two and Twenty-Three - or start right at the beginning and enjoy a good old binge-listen.
Tales for Our Time is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership, which makes a fine Christmas present, and this holiday season comes with a special personalized Christmas card from Mark and a handsomely-engraved gift-boxed USB stick with three of our most popular Tales for Our Time for your pal or relative to listen to in the car or perambulating through the wilderness or almost anywhere else. (The trio of tales is The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, The Time Machine and The Thirty-Nine Steps.) For more on our Christmas Gift Membership, see here.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week and the thrilling conclusion of The Scarlet Pimpernel.
