As a follow-up to his recent Clubland Q&A, Mark answers more questions from Steyn Club members around the planet on the big story of the weekend - the Chinese balloon - and related matters, such as the American way of war and the rise of the ChiComs. Plus the woeful state of free speech, and a favourite telly theme.

Steyn will be conducting the next Clubland Q&A live around the planet on Friday - and, ahead of that, we'll also have a brand new episode of The Mark Steyn Show.
Mark's Mailbox is a special production of The Mark Steyn Club, now in its sixth year. Among the pleasures of membership is that you can enjoy our TV content in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you'd rather sample the above in non-visual form, please log-in here.
~If you prefer Steyn live in person, don't forget this summer's Mark Steyn Cruise down the Adriatic. Mark's guests include his favourite presidential candidate and peerless comedienne Michele Bachmann, longtime EIB comrade Bo Snerdley, Brexiteer John O'Sullivan, plus Steyn Show mainstays Leilani Dowding, Alexandra Marshall, Eva Vlaardingerbroek and more. More details here - but hurry because, despite the Great Reset and confinement to "fifteen-minute cities", certain cabin classes are going fast.
~Notwithstanding Mark's brace of heart attacks, we had a busy weekend at SteynOnline, starting with Mark himself back in the chair for our Clubland Q&A. As Florida Steyn Clubber Patricia Carpin wrote:
What a joy today to hear you in full glory! And to hear you sing so beautifully in French brought tears to my eyes!
Stay safe, stay free and do stay with us.
Rick McGinnis's Saturday movie date offered Doris Day in Teacher's Pet - and Tal Bachman concluded his survey of U2, with a cameo appearance by George W Bush. Steyn's Song of the Week celebrated African-American History Month somewhat heavier on the African than you might have expected.
If you were too busy firing at that balloon that's been hovering over your end gable for a week and a half, we hope you'll want to check out one or three of the foregoing as a new week gets underway.
If you enjoy Mark's long-form interviews with the likes of Jordan Peterson, Naomi Wolf, Christopher Caldwell and Helen Rappaport, we've made them easier to access in our Netflix-style tile-format archive page. As with our poetry and fiction and music home-pages, we hope this makes it easier to pick out some Steyn entertainment of an evening come the next lockdown or ChiCom EMP balloon.
