Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with a sodden convertible, an umbrella, and a rock'n'roll Christmas classic.
~Monday was a busy day for Steyn, starting with wombles, cockwombles and litigious cockwombles, continuing with three hours behind the Golden EIB Microphone on America's Number One radio show, and wrapping up with a double whammy on "Tucker Carlson Tonight": the rise of China, and of the Democrats' old white men.
~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on (among many other topics) the iniquity of "process crimes", the betrayal of Brexit, and the necessity of republican virtue. You can hear the full show here.
~Wednesday brought news of intensified leftie pressure for a boycott of Tucker Carlson and the latest battle in the cake wars, which Steyn tied to DC's sclerotic and dysfunctional court system in a midweek round-up of free speech issues.
~On Thursday Tucker and Mark considered the sad fate of CNN's "Journalist of the Year". Click below to watch:
~On Friday Steyn read the third of this year's festive Tales for Our Time: Following a seasonal sampler from Little Women and Holmes, Watson and a Christmas goose in The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, Mark presented an O Henry Classic and the perfect American short story, The Gift of the Magi.
Tales for Our Time is made with the support of 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 Christmas Gift Membership.
~On Saturday The Mark Steyn Christmas Show found Mark welcoming guests from Hollywood, New York, Quebec, Ireland, Wales and France for a hour of storytelling and song:
Our weekend movie date considered Christmas movies with a military theme.
Now that the all the holiday mailing dates have passed, if you're in need of last-minute gifts, may we propose a digitally-delivered gift membership in The Mark Steyn Club; two on the aisle for Dennis Miller and Mark Steyn live on stage; or a berth on next year's second annual Mark Steyn Cruise.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with a special edition of our Song of the Week.
