Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, November 11-17

Greetings to our readers around the world. Later today Mark will be presenting another entry in his series of Sunday Poems. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with Veterans Day in America and Remembrance Day throughout the Commonwealth. Mark offered some thoughts on war and remembrance, and an encore presentation of a great poem from the Great War.

~Later on Monday a brand new edition of Mark's Mailbox pondered everything from Trumpian rhetoric to civilizational collapse via EMP attacks, a post-oil Middle East and a post-Christian Europe. Click below to watch:

Mark's Mailbox is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Steyn Club, see here. it was our most read piece of the week.

Mark then joined Tucker Carlson to discuss a Berkeley philosopher's dismissal of rural Americans:

~On Tuesday, Laura's Links roamed the Internet from Swedish drag to non-binary gingerbread.

~On Wednesday Adam Schiff's impeachment hearings began in Washington. Steyn looked back at impeachment 1999 style, but found today's version thin gruel. His review of the latter was nevertheless our most read piece of the week.

~On Thursday Mark and Tucker contemplated one of the sadder aspects of impeachment coverage, and one of the jollier - Trump's impeachment shtick.

~On Friday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on a range of topics from Donbas to Don Cherry. You can listen to the full show here.

Clubland Q&A is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Steyn Club, see here - and click here for details of three live Mark Steyn Shows coming up in Montreal this week. We hope to see you there!

~On the weekend we like to avert our gaze from the grubby churn of politics and kick loose with music and movies. This week Mark celebrated a classic songwriting team of the last sixty years, and mourned John Cleese's lost England.

Much of what we do here each month, including Tales for Our Time, Steyn's Song of the Week and our Sunday Poem, we also do live and on water on our Mark Steyn cruises. We're thrilled that so many have already signed up for next year's Third Annual Steyn Cruise, with Michele Bachmann, Conrad Black and more. But, if you're thinking about it, please don't leave it too late.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, September 16-22

A happy last day of summer to SteynOnline's readers in the northern hemisphere. (While we're well-wishing, happy Resistance Fighting Day to our Estonian Mark Steyn Club members. While we don't know what the fall will bring for you, may it be delightful in its pumpkin-spiced glory.

In any case, it's been a busy week here at SteynOnline – here's now the last seven days looked for Steyn:

~Kicking things off for the week, Mark's Monday Notebook looked at the distorted priorities of ICE – specifically the agency's pride in seizing a few thousand bucks worth of NFL merchandise while illegal immigrants traipse across the border.

~Mark kept his regular Monday date with Tucker, talking about Joe Biden's "Corn Pop" story, which, as Mark noted, sounded like "a Biden parody of a Steyn parody of a Biden anecdote."

~On Tuesday, Mark penned a hearty read about Michael Mann and his futile attempts to spin his loss in the British Columbia Supreme Court a couple of weeks ago.

~Laura Rosen Cohen returned with her popular and rapid-fire Laura's Links on Thursday, sharing some thoughts on the recent Mark Steyn Cruise to Alaska and bringing us more information than we wanted about Caitlyn Jenner's penis, not to mention stories about a free speech victory and European anti-Semitism, among others.

~Friday brought us a new edition of Mark's Mailbox, which took on a decidedly judicial theme. In it, Mark took questions on miscarriages of justice from the United States to the United Kingdom to Australia.

~As we welcomed the weekend, Mark reflected on North By Northwest on the film's 60th anniversary.

A new week continues tonight with Steyn's Song of the Week.
