It's been a busy week at SteynOnline. here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~Mark continued his daily summer serialization of Erskine Childers' The Riddle of the Sands for Tales for our Time, part 10 of which will be up this evening. If you haven't yet started the series, Mark Steyn Club members can find them all on our new Netflix-inspired Tales for our Time homepage.
~On Monday, Mark celebrated the four-year anniversary of the escalator ride that both upended American politics and changed the world.
~Mark's old chum and fellow Canadian Andrew Lawton shared his thoughts on the Canadian Liberal party giving section 13 of the country's human rights act the Lazarus effect, much to the detriment of free speech.
~With former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi's courtroom death, Mark weighed in on Morsi's reign and legacy in The Brother Who Blew It.
~Back by popular demand, Laura Rosen Cohen shared Laura's Links with us on Thursday, an electronic expedition from Michiganstahn to the Vatican and back.
~To welcome in the weekend, guest movie columnist Kathy Shaidle took a look at the paradoxical but award-winning Bengali classic Pather Panchali.
~Saturday, Mark reflected on the 50th anniversary of Judy Garland's untimely passing by sharing his much-requested 2005 obituary of Garland's ex-husband Sid Luft. The tribute continues tonight with a Garland-themed Song of the Week.
Whether musing about Judy Garland or Mohamed Morsi is your bag, there will be lots of time for that aboard the Mark Steyn Cruise. Our upcoming cruise to Alaska is sold out, but we're briskly booking cabins for our third voyage, which hits the Mediterranean Sea next year. If you prefer to engage with like-minded folks from around the world away from the open waters, consider joining the Mark Steyn Club or bringing a friend into the fold with a special Gift Membership.
