Later this morning Mark will be presenting the latest in his series of Steyn's Sunday Poems. Following the success of our new Netflix-style Tales for Our Time home page, we've re-organized Mark's archive of video poems into a similar easy-to-access tile format.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
~The month bust out and the week started with Mark's thoughts on useless Tories on either side of the Atlantic, a sheepish Wolf, and the convoluted trail that brought Leon Redbone to America.
~On Monday Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to consider Kanye West's weariness with celebrity-liberal group-think. Click below to watch:
~Tuesday found Mark back in Ottawa to give evidence to the House of Commons Committee on Justice and Human Rights re the proposed return of Section 13 - the "hate-speech" law Steyn helped get repealed seven years ago. It was the strangest parliamentary hearing Mark has ever attended, beginning with the decision to de-televise the event and move it to audio only, which you can hear in full here.
~Between the switch-off of the cameras and the sacking of the MP who invited Steyn, the free-speech hearing attracted a lot of media comment. Mark rounded it up in his Wednesday column.
~On Thursday Steyn observed the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It was our most read piece of the week.
~The week ended with Mark's interview by David Menzies on the parlous state of free speech:
~Our Saturday movie date marked the centenary of one of the most influential acting teachers.
There's more than video poetry in The Mark Steyn Club. If you've a friend who's a fan of classic fiction in audio, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership: Your chum will get to enjoy not only our latest adventure, and our brand new tale starting this Friday, but also Mark's readings of Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Conrad, Kafka, Kipling, Gogol, Scott Fitzgerald, Jack London, Baroness Orczy and many more, all easily accessible from our brand new Tales for Our Time home page.
