Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 10-16

Happy Easter and/or Passover. On this Easter morn, we have a movie on the meaning and a song for the season. More somberly, in the wake of the Palm Sunday massacre in Egypt, Mark writes about the ongoing war on Christians: it's our most-read piece of the week.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Mark joining Jesse Watters on Fox News to ponder the latest theories on Trump and Putin, Syria and Russia.

~Our Song of the Week featured a musical first: a great Canadian performer singing a classic Canadian song that he's never sung before. Click below to watch:

~Wednesday was the 100th anniversary of a great Canadian victory at Vimy Ridge. In a brand new SteynPost, Mark considered the gulf between then and now - and the long shadows of the Great War. Click below to watch:

~Thursday's Mark Steyn Show presented an in-depth interview with a beleaguered professor, Jordan Peterson, fighting for his life over transgender pronouns, free speech, and politically correct totalitarianism. Click below to watch:

~Friday marked the centenary of the birth of Valerie Hobson, Bride of Frankenstein (the aristocrat, that is, who created the monster), bride of a more urbane monster-turned-aristocrat in Kind Hearts and Coronets, and finally the long-suffering wife of the man at the heart of Britain's most famous sex scandal.

~Mark ended the week on the radio with CFRA's Evan Solomon talking US foreign policy in the age of Trump and the nuclearization of psycho states.

Steyn has a new project he's working on - about various aspects of the highly lucrative American "student-loan industry", and especially so-called PLUS loans marketed direct to parents. If you've any interesting experiences, do shoot him an email. Confidentiality will be respected.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with Mark's Song of the Week - and look and listen for Steyn on the airwaves as the week proceeds.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 3-9

On this one hundredth anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

It was a fast-moving week for news, beginning with the latest development in the Beltway fever swamp about Russian "hacking" and ending with Trump bombing Russia's principal Middle East client. Steyn discussed the former issue with Tucker Carlson on his highly successful primetime show, following the revelation that Obama's National Security Advisor had spent a year "wiretapping" Trump and his associates. Click below to watch:

On the latter, Mark turned up on the morning after the bombing raid before to analyze the Syrian attack on "Fox & Friends". Click below to watch:

Otherwise, the week found Steyn in elegaic mood, starting with our Song of the Week. After the Westminster Bridge terrorist murders, the Brexit trigger, and Dame Vera Lynn's hundredth birthday, Mark found himself wondering whether "There'll Always Be An England".

~On Monday Ayaan Hirsi Ali canceled her tour of Australia for "security reasons". Steyn considered the state of free speech in a world of Islamic intimidation and western appeasement. It was our most read piece of the week: "The Big Shut-Up."

~Tuesday's SteynPost featured Mark on pomp and permanence, immigration and illusion.

~Wednesday's Mark Steyn Show saw Mark in London talking "cultural appropriation" with bestselling novelist Lionel Shriver. Click below to watch:

~On Thursday Steyn returned to the subject of the "Russia" investigations with Neil Cavuto on Fox News as the US Government announced its revised position on Putin's Syrian proxy.

~Friday's edition of The Mark Steyn Weekend Show featured Part Two of his interview with Lionel Shriver, about America after the dollar's collapse, plus a look at the landmark movie Metropolis, and Cheryl Bentyne from the Manhattan Transfer performing a classic Leon Russell song.

In grimmer news the latest "truck attack" in Stockholm vindicated Mark's observations of Sweden on a recent SteynPost.

~Our Saturday movie date celebrated the hundredth anniversary of Buster Keaton's screen debut: Mark paid tribute to "The Great Stone Face". But he also rounded out the week with a live weekend update on Syria, Russia, Susan Rice et al with Jesse Watters.

Steyn has a new project he's working on - about the highly lucrative American "student-loan industry", and especially so-called PLUS loans marketed direct to parents. If you've any interesting observations to share, do shoot him an email. Confidentiality will be respected.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 27-April 2

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a SteynOnline audio special that found Mark sharing a few moments with Chuck Berry.

~On Monday's SteynPost Mark revisited his famous line "When everybody's Hitler, nobody's Hitler". Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's Mark Steyn Show featured a full-length interview with Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, the authors of a new book about America's biggest mass murderer, the infanticidal monster Kermit Gosnell. Click below to watch:

~Wednesday was Brexit Day, the day that Her Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom belatedly triggered Article 50 and began the process of leaving the European Union. Mark celebrated.

Also on Wednesday climate mullah Michael E Mann testified to the US Congress - and Rick Wallace published some thoughtful reflections on Steyn's book "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in Their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, his Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science - Volume One, personally autographed copies of which are exclusively available from the SteynOnline bookstore, and go to support Mark's end of this interminable case.

~Thursday's brand new SteynPost found Mark telling a tale of two Houses of Commons - one in London, one in Ottawa, both with confused and dangerous attitudes to Islam.

~On Friday Mark joined Neil Cavuto on Fox Business to talk Trump and Putin, smoke and mirrors: "Russian to Judgment."

~The weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show found Steyn live on stage in Ottawa with a stirring paean to free speech, plus obscure Canadian jokes, his house band, questions from the audience, and a live performance of two fine songs - one Canadian, one English - by the great Tal Bachman. Click below to watch:

~Our Saturday movie date celebrated a classic, North By Northwest, and its screenwriter Ernest Lehman.

Steyn has a new project he's working on - about the highly lucrative American "student-loan industry", and especially so-called PLUS loans marketed direct to parents. If you've any interesting observations to share, do shoot him an email. Confidentiality will be respected.

Mark is now more or less living off his cat-album royalties. Fortunately, Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, dedicated to his own beloved cat Marvin, continues to stack up five-star reviews at Amazon. We liked this latest one from Katherine Santelli:

Cute, clever and really funny! I am so happy to hear the theme from my favorite childhood cartoon 'Top Cat' again.

Everyone has different stand-out tracks on the album, Katherine, but we're glad you like "Top Cat". Mark thinks the band and Emma, Janet and Mary on backing vocals do most of the heavy lifting, but he does manage to cling on for dear life all the way to the end. Let us know your favorite song - and don't forget Feline Groovy is available on CD or, for instant gratification, via digital download from Amazon or iTunes.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with Mark's Song of the Week - and look and listen for Steyn on TV and radio as the week goes on.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 20-26

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a live performance of an iconic Song of the Week. Click below to watch:

~On Monday's SteynPost Mark looked at the great migrations, and suicide by virtue-signaling.

~It was a busy week for Steyn on TV and radio, starting with a Monday-night appearance with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, after a very fevered day of Congressional hearings - on Trump, Russia and more. Click below to watch:

Following that appearance, Mark was back on TV on Wednesday, joining "Fox & Friends" to discuss an horrific rape in a school bathroom by an illegal immigrant.

~On Wednesday The Mark Steyn Show launched a brand new series of interviews with Canadian Conservative Party leadership candidates. Mark started by discussing immigration and "values" with Dr Kellie Leitch. On Friday he asked former Transport Minister Lisa Raitt about whether her own family background had colored her views on abortion. In between Steyn talked to the man who was briefly Canada's Foreign Minister and then became Quebec's comeback kid, Maxime "Mad Max" Bernier. Click below to watch:

~On Thursday Mark was back behind the Golden EIB Microphone to guest-host America's Number One radio show. The big topic that day was yet another Islamic terror attack, this time in London.

~On Friday Steyn swung by one of his favorite shows, "Varney & Company" on Fox Business, for a spirited argument with Stuart Varney on the soon-to-be-deceased Obamacare-replacement bill.

~The weekend saw the return of our Request of the Week department, and a Steyn classic on the birth of the euro.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with Mark's reminiscence of the late Chuck Berry. Look and listen for Steyn on TV and radio later this week, including a brand new episode of The Mark Steyn Show.

Steyn in for Rush

Today, Thursday, I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone on America's Number One radio show. Three hours of substitute-host-level excellence in broadcasting starts at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. If you're in the vicinity of the receiving apparatus, I hope you'll dial us up, either on one of 600 Rush affiliate stations across the US or via iHeartRadio livestream.

Obamacare and Trumptapping are likely to come up, as well as the latest vehicular jihad at the Palace of Westminster that left five dead, including an American tourist. We'll talk about all that and more, and your calls are always welcome.

~When it came to identifying the perpetrator of the London attack, Britain's Channel 4 News got a little too ahead of their skis and took a tumble:

At the beginning of Channel 4's 7 O'clock news bulletin, the broadcaster announced that they had reason to believe Abu Izzadeen, the Islamic hate preacher, was the Westminster terror attacker.

However as the show went on, this 'scoop' began to unravel. You see there was a problem... sources suggested that Izzadeen couldn't have been in Westminster as he is actually in jail.

Indeed he is. Abu Izzadeen rang a bell with me. He's a revert who was born Trevor Brooks, and, shortly after his embrace of Islam, styled himself Omar Brooks. He has a passing mention in my book Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech and the Twilight of the West (personally autographed copies of which are exclusively available at the SteynOnline bookstore):

...Omar Brooks, the British Muslim comic whose boffo Islamostand-up routine was reported in The Times of London last year:

'At one point he announces dramatically that the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center "changed many people's lives". After a pause, he brings the house down by adding: "Especially those inside."'

He didn't bring the house down literally. He leaves that to Mohammed Atta.

That essay was one of those that got me in trouble with Canada's "human rights" commissions. The Canadian Islamic Congress' five sock-puppets complained that I'd said that Muslims wanted to drink the blood of non-believers.

Er, no. That wasn't me that was Omar Brooks. Back to Lights Out:

In a debate at Trinity College, Dublin, recently, the aforementioned Omar Brooks said that Muhammad's message to non-believers was: "I come to slaughter all of you." He meant it, but come on, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to weep with laughter.

Warming to his theme, he said, "We are the Muslims. We drink the blood of the enemy, and we can face them anywhere."

But of course it's grossly insensitive to quote prominent Muslims accurately.

I'm glad Omar Brooks/Abu Izzadeen is in gaol. But, even if he weren't, he doesn't seem to me to be the self-detonating type. Leave that to the little guys.

~I'm pretty much living on my cat-album royalties these days, so I had one of those good news/bad news moments a couple of days ago. The good news was that Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats was selling well; the bad news was that it was selling so well it sold out at Amazon. I'm happy to say, if you're champing at the bit, that it's back in stock and available on CD - or, if you're hot for instant gratification, it can be yours in seconds via digital download from Amazon or iTunes. And digital stocks never sell out.

On the other hand, if you're saying "Screw your cat album, Steyn!", I am currently working on a new book about a big-picture civilizational theme, and, aside from Lights Out, I've got quite a few other ones I made earlier (as they say on the cooking shows) that still stand up quite well. If you know a would-be Steyn reader, they might appreciate a SteynOnline gift certificate, starting at $25 and going up from there.

~Oh, and there'll be a new episode of The Mark Steyn Show later today.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 13-19

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a Song of the Week special with a brace of 007 guests: Bond lyricist Don Black and Bond villain Robert Davi joined Mark to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first British song to win an Oscar - "Born Free". Click below to watch:

~Monday found Steyn back behind the Golden EIB Microphone guest-hosting for Rush on America's Number One radio show. While he was on the air, litigious climate mullah Michael E Mann filed his response to the latest proceduralist folderol in the Mann vs Steyn case, soon to enter its sixth year. At The Washington Post, Jonathan Adler analyzed the latest development.

~On Tuesday's Mark Steyn Show, Mark presented a full-length interview with the man who interrogated Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other A-list terrorists, James E Mitchell. Click below to watch:

~On Wednesday's SteynPost Mark considered issues of immigration, diversity, free speech ...and some famous lines of Kipling.

~On Thursday's SteynPost Mark mused on the supposedly non-existent "Deep State".

~On Friday's brand new episode of The Mark Steyn Show, Mark talked to Christopher Caldwell about immigration and Islam, in Europe and America.

~The week ended with The Australian republishing Steyn's much admired tribute to a great free-speech warrior, the late cartoonist Bill Leak.

As we mentioned last weekend, these days Mark is pretty much living off royalties from his his cat album. So the good news is that Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats continues to sell quite well. The bad news is that it's sold so well the CD has completely sold out at Amazon. More copies are en route (pay no attention to that "two to five weeks" notice), and should arrive tomorrow, Monday. In the meantime, you can pick up the physical album at CD Baby or direct from the Steyn store. And of course if you're downloadably minded, it can be yours in seconds via Amazon or iTunes.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with a live performance of an iconic Song of the Week. And don't miss Mark on the radio later this week.

Feline Rushy

Today, Monday, I'll be starting the week behind the Golden EIB Microphone on America's Number One radio show. Three hours of substitute-host-level excellence in broadcasting starts at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. If you're in possession of the necessary receiving apparatus, I hope you'll dial us up, either on one of 600 Rush affiliate stations across the US or via iHeartRadio livestream.

~I'm still digesting the sudden death of a great cartoonist and a magnificent free-speech warrior, The Australian's Bill Leak. Tim Blair has an interesting vignette on how the totalitarian enforcers police their own:

Rather than join the left-wing online hatefest against artist Bill Leak, who died on Friday, Marlton actually wrote something nice, touching and true.

"Oh Bill. This is very sad," [Guardian leftie Andrew Marlton] tweeted about his fellow Walkley Award-winning cartoonist. "We didn't agree on much, but he was a lovely bloke in person."

Indeed he was, as Bill's huge number of friends will attest. But that brief yet heartfelt farewell was too much for Marlton's leftie followers, who raged that Leak was a terrible racist­, homophobe and misogynist who deserves no respect even in death. "F ... right off," seethed one respondent to Marlton's post, damning Leak as "a racist c ...".

So what did Marlton do? Did he stand by his words? Did he argue with the hostile Twitter legions? Did he defend himself? Did he insist that in his personal experience Bill Leak was in fact a lovely bloke? No. In a spectacular act of absolute cowardice, Marlton caved. He wimped it. He melted like the fragile little snowflake that he is. He deleted the post.

Worse still, he then indicated his agreement with the piece of garbage who smeared Bill as a racist c ... "Yeah fair point," Marlton wrote, of a man he'd just described as "lovely".

That's where the left is today. They'll write all manner of savage and inaccurate slurs but censor themselves when they express something pleasant. Even if they sincerely believe in something, they won't say it if it risks upsetting their group-thinking comrades.

Who would wish to belong to such a side? The left professes to be "scared" of Trumpists and racists and fascists and transphobes. But, as Andrew Marlton's behavior reveals, in the end what they're really scared of is their own thuggish enforcers. I'll have an appalling American example of the same psychosis on Rush in an hour or two.

~Later in the week I'll be joining Robert Davi on his radio show. Yes, aside from being an actor and singer and all-round entertainer and unusually creepy Bond villain (License To Kill), Robert is also a radio host. On this weekend's Song of the Week, the 007 villain joined me and longtime 007 lyricist Don Black to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first British song to win an Oscar: "Born Free." Don talks about writing the famous film theme, after which, in a world premiere performance, Robert sings it with the Mark Steyn Show Band. You can watch the episode here.

PS Speaking of all-round entertainers, I woke up this Monday morning to find that I'm Amazon's Number One bestselling jazz vocalist. I'm stunned, humbled, and a little relieved - because, since I got fired by CRTV, I'm pretty much living off my cat album royalties. If you haven't yet picked up a copy of Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, dedicated to my own groovy feline Marvin, it's available on CD - or, for instant gratification, via digital download from Amazon or iTunes.

On the other hand, if you're saying "Nuts to your cats album, Steyn!", I am currently working on a new book on a big-picture civilizational theme, and I've got quite a few ones I made earlier (as they say on the cooking shows) that still stand up quite well. If you know a would-be Steyn reader, they might appreciate a SteynOnline gift certificate, starting at $25 and going up from there. On the subject of books, should hockey-stick huckster Michael Mann's interminable lawsuit against me succeed, it would be the worst setback for the First Amendment in half-a-century. Such unlikely Steyn allies as NBC, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, etc, all agree on that - in their amicus briefs - as does The New York Post in this editorial: "DC Court of Appeals' Global Warming Decision Threatens First Amendment". If you're interested in keeping me in the game until this outrageous case comes to trial, well, I wrote a whole book on this subject.

~Re my above-mentioned firing by CRTV, among the responses from their subscribers was this one, by John Morgan:

Dear CRTV,

Just allowed my CRTV subscription to expire; may or may not renew. So, here's my summation of THE STATE OF FLEDGLING "CRTV":

umm . . it is mostly a few shows of guys sitting in front of microphones (sorry, but that's a format called radio, not TV; --yes, Levin's microphone is fake, but it's still very visible on his awesome set).

Michelle Malkin's show started strong, but then it mostly went away (and we can glean the show is clearly going to be very periodic).

Stephen Crowder's show is great--and it appeals to my son and his generation as well--hooray!-- still, most days it's Stephen and his great crew in front of--wait for it-- microphones!

Steve Deace, (watch --or, er, listened???) just once––he was decent; i agreed with him, but nothing exciting to watch (to be kind) and-- once again-- clearly a radio guy with a big old microphone in front of him.

Again, there is nothing visually interesting about a host and their cohorts sitting in front of microphones talking--this is simply filmed radio. I realize it must be cheap to do, but CRTV is supposed to be "Television" (It's in your brand name, for God sake).

Now we get to the recently deceased --but many of us are praying-- eventually resurrected--"Mark Steyn Show". This was actually television--in fact it was a Variety Television Show (and probably should've been labeled "the Marc Steyn Variety Show"--as it was much in the format of that well-known genre)... the big shows often featured live performance, interesting guests, movie and art discussion (BTW, newsflash--many conservatives actually value art and culture!), plus they offered Mark's unique political insight and humor. And, other than the host or his guests singing into microphones, I don't believe I saw one on the set; this was clearly a TV SHOW!!

In case you can't figure it out--people like me felt this was a POSITIVE to your CRTV lineup of shows, not a NEGATIVE! CRTV minus the Marc Steyn show IS a negative--because CRTV is simply way less interesting. Bring him back; I will gladly resubscribe--with gusto! I want you guys to succeed. TRULY.

However, I recommend being careful about adding any more shows featuring guy/gals sitting behind microphones (... because we can listen to radio for free).

You can listen to America's Number One radio show for free starting at noon Eastern. See you then!

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 6-12

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with a SteynPost arising from President Trump's recent remarks on Sweden: Mark addressed what's really going on in the country, and the media's remarkable lack of interest. Click below to watch:

~Monday's Mark Steyn Show featured the unsettled science of climate change, your questions in Mark's Mailbox, and an interview with the bestselling historian Amity Shlaes on Coolidge's relevance in the age of Trump.

~On Tuesday's SteynPost, Mark considered questions of age and identity as seen in France, America, Turkey, Britain and elsewhere.

~On Wednesday Steyn joined New England radio colossus Howie Carr to chew over Trump Tweeting and media bleating. North of the border he visited with his former piano-playing imam Andrew Lawton to talk immigration and identity politics.

~Thursday's Mark Steyn Show featured something special: Steyn on stage, looking at where America and the world are headed. Click below to watch:

~On Friday morning the Australian cartoonist Bill Leak died suddenly of a massive heart attack. Mark paid tribute to a great free-speech warrior who stood up to both Islamic supremacists and leftist totalitarians.

Following his firing by CRTV, Steyn is now all but totally dependent on his cat album royalties. So, as Andrew Lawton mentioned on the radio, he was modestly cheered to find that he was, somewhat improbably, Amazon's Number One bestselling jazz vocalist last week, thanks to an uptick in sales for Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, dedicated to his own groovy feline Marvin:

If you'd like to help make it the bestselling album of the year, Feline Groovy is available on CD - or, for instant gratification, via digital download from Amazon or iTunes.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with an Oscar-winning Song of the Week. Tomorrow, Monday, Mark will be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone to host America's Number One radio show for a full three hours starting at 12 noon Eastern.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, February 27-March 5

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with Steyn in Ottawa, where he surveyed the global scene in an interview by The Rebel's Brian Lilley .

~On Monday Mark was fired and his TV show canceled by CRTV, who issued one of those bland statements no sentient creature believes a word of. For contrasting takes on what really happened, here's a view from the left (at Salon) and a view from the right (at Conservative Treehouse). For the views of CRTV's customers, see here. As for Steyn, desperate times call for desperate measures.

~On Tuesday Mark paid tribute to his sometime co-host at Fox News, the late Alan Colmes, and reflected on the lameness of labels.

~On Wednesday Steyn returned to one of his favorite TV shows, "Varney & Company" at Fox Business. He talked about President Trump's joint address and then the Obamas' book deal:

~Thursday's Mark Steyn Show was devoted to a full-length interview with one of the sharpest minds in America, Hillsdale College president Larry Arnn. Click below to watch:

~On Friday Mark returned to Fox News to discuss immigration and terrorism with Neil Cavuto, and then joined Liz MacDonald on Fox Business for the related subject of immigration and gang violence.

At the end of a miserable week for Steyn at the hands of dishonorable men, he was modestly heartened to find that his cat album Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, dedicated to his own groovy feline Marvin, continuing to stack up five-star reviews at Amazon, including this one from Jeffrey Meyer:

Cute and funny

Only 1 bad tune on the album, in my opinion.

Next time don't be so coy, Mr Meyer: Tell us which one it is. If you'd like to figure it out for yourself, Feline Groovy is available on CD - and, for instant gratification, via digital download from Amazon or iTunes.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with Steyn on Sweden.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, January 23-29

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with Steyn's Song of the Week and a haunting, klezmerized version of his favorite Leonard Cohen number.

~On Tuesday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show, Mark considered the "women's march" in Washington and hosted Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, authors of a brand new book on the biggest serial killer Americans have never heard of. (Ann also joined him on America's Number One radio show two days later.)

Mark also addressed the performance of the American media in the Trump era: having got the pre-election period entirely wrong, they're now determined to get the post-election period even wronger.

~On Wednesday a distinguished but dissident climate scientist, Dr Judith Curry, filed an important amicus brief in the long-running suit brought by hockey-stick huckster Michael E Mann against Steyn and others. As longtime readers know, the case is a major threat to free speech in America. Dr Curry's blistering brief exposes the appalling double standards and unscientific behavior of Mann. As she puts it:

Mann wants a legal guarantee that he can dish it out, but he doesn't have to take it.

Shame on the DC courts for entertaining such a proposition. You can read the full brief by one of climate science's bravest practitioners here. Mark remains grateful to readers and viewers around the world who've supported him in this interminable, time-consuming battle against the Big Climate enforcers, and especially those who've bought his climatological bestseller on Mann's damage to science.

~Thursday brought a double dose of Steyn on the airwaves. First, he guest-hosted for Rush on America's Number One radio show, addressing such topics as EPA employees sobbing their way to work in the new Trump terror. Later, on Thursday's edition of The Mark Steyn Show, apropos of the new president's pledge to "fight fire with fire", he conducted an in-depth interview with the man who waterboarded 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other A-list terrorists, Dr James Mitchell.

~On Friday Mark was dismayed to find that a sarcastic Steyn aside has apparently been adopted as official government policy by Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull: We're gonna need a lot more bollards.

~On the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show, Mark looked at the new Michael Keaton film about the man who made McDonald's a global brand. He also welcomed the great Patsy Gallant to perform a trio of Édith Piaf songs, revealed his ties to MI6, and tipped his hat to the late Mary Tyler Moore.

A new se'nnight of Steyn begins tonight with our Song of the Week - and stay tuned for this week's episodes of The Mark Steyn Show, on which his guests will include a triple Oscar winner, and a beleaguered university professor pushing back against identity-politics totalitarianism. In February he'll be bringing the show live to the annual Manning Conference in Ottawa. For more details on The Mark Steyn Show, see here.
