Happy Superbowl Sunday to all our American readers. Mark and the great Dennis Miller will be launching their first ever stage tour together in Pennsylvania and New York later this month, and on Monday morning, at 8am Eastern, they'll join Dave Allen on 570 WSYR live across Syracuse, where they'll be appearing at the Crouse-Hinds Theatre on February 23rd. Details of other Miller/Steyn dates below.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~Mark's Monday Notebook looked at what happens when your "likes" on Twitter aren't liked by coppers, and France's descent into the Wodehousian stage of social protest: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later that day, Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to ponder the battalions of Bernies running for president.
~On Tuesday Mark started the day with Webster & Nancy on WILK NewsRadio in Pennsylvania, just ahead of his appearance with Dennis Miller at the Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre. Topics covered ranged from hate to haircuts. Click below to listen:
Miller and Steyn will also be appearing on February 22nd at the Santander Performing Arts Center in Reading, Pennsylvania (where tickets are selling fast) and also doing a couple of New York dates, at the Crouse-Hinds Theatre in Syracuse, and at the Kodak Center in Rochester. And don't forget, with VIP seating you get to meet Dennis and Mark after the show. More details of the Miller/Steyn New York/Pennsylvania gigs here.
~On Wednesday Mark kept his midweek date with John Oakley at Toronto's Global News Radio 640, chewing over the Liberals' new Ministry of Truth, the Starbucks honcho's entry into the US presidential race - and how "assimilation" became politically incorrect:
~On Thursday Steyn was back with Tucker Carlson to consider one of the spirits of the age - the woke billionaire. Click below to watch:
~On Friday, with North America reeling under a "polar vortex", Tales for Our Time presented Mark's reading of a literally chilling story by Jack London, To Build a Fire. Paul, a Mark Steyn Club member from Colorado, writes:
I've been a member for about a month and I have been all through the Tales and have started over; they are such a rich addition to my day.
Much appreciated, Paul. We will have a new adventure for you later this month. 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 Gift Membership.
~Mark's old boss Conrad Black was treated disgracefully by the appalling and corrupt US justice system. On Saturday Lord Black wrote a characteristically sharp defense of Steyn and evisceration of Blaze Media mogul and litigious billionaire Cary Katz.
With a chill in the air, we thought it was time for a non-stop laugh-riot climate comedy as our weekend movie date: The Day After Tomorrow.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week - and continues on Monday with Mark and Dennis Miller joining Dave Allen on 570 WSYR live at 8am Eastern. We hope you'll tune in.
