Programming note: Today, Thursday, I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone for three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence In Broadcasting on America's Number One radio show. The fun starts in an hour or so at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. If you're in the vicinity of the receiving apparatus, I hope you'll dial us up either via the iHeart Radio app or on one of over 600 stations across the fruited plain, such as our old friends at WNTK New Hampshire, where you can listen to the full show from anywhere on the planet right here.
I'm not sure what's on the rundown for today's broadcast, but there's plenty of exciting news from hither and yon - Washington, Pyongyang, maybe even Ottawa. We'll try to get to as much of it as we can, and Mr Snerdley is looking forward to taking your calls on 1 (800) 282-2882.
~When I was pinch-hitting for Rush on Monday, I mentioned this year's second annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise, with the legendary Dennis Miller joining Michele Bachmann and the rest of our merry crew. And a lot of listeners said, "Wait, what, I didn't get the URL, say it again..." Well, you can find out more details of the cruise here - and check out potential accommodations here. But don't leave it too late: As with most travel plans, the prices are more congenial the earlier you book.
Oh, and if you seek evidence of a presidential candidate's versatility, here's Michele Bachmann lending me a helping hand to help celebrate one of her favorite books on Tales for Our Time: Anne of Green Gables. Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. As I always say, membership isn't for everyone, but it does come with some special benefits, including:
~Our above-mentioned audio adventures in Tales for Our Time;
~Exclusive Steyn Store member pricing on over 40 books, mugs, T-shirts, and other products;
~The opportunity to engage in live Clubland Q&A sessions with yours truly;
~Transcript and audio versions of The Mark Steyn Show, SteynPosts, and other video content;
~My Sunday series of video poetry;
~Advance booking for my live appearances around the world;
~Customized email alerts for new content in your areas of interest;
~The opportunity to join me, Dennis, Michele and my other guests on the Mark Steyn Club Cruise;
~and the chance to support our print, audio and video ventures as they wing their way around the planet.
See you on the telly with Tucker, and on the radio at noon Eastern - and do give me a call.
