On this Sunday morning the world is waking up to the news that the wannabe Caliph died “whimpering and crying and screaming“. Mark will have more on the death of Baghdadi in the days ahead. Also in this run-up to All Hallows’ Eve, he’ll be here this evening with the first episode of a suitably spooky Tale for Our Time.

~The week began with our Song of the Week celebrating a Bacharach & David classic.
~Mark’s Monday Notebook considered the dismal state of the United Kingdom: Brexit, racist statues, and the human right of a transwoman to star in a porno.
Later that day Steyn checked in with Tucker Carlson to discuss the reluctance of no-name presidential candidates to fly with the peasantry.
~Tuesday was the fifth anniversary of the murder of Corporal Nathan Cirillo at the Cenotaph in Ottawa. It was also the bleak morning after of a grim Canadian election: Mark’s analysis of the results was our most read piece of the week. On The John Oakley Show Steyn expressed a preference for Andrew Scheer’s hologram over what purports to be the real thing. Click below to listen:

~On Friday Mark started the day at “Fox & Friends” talking among other things about Oxford University’s ban on clapping in favor of “jazz hands”. The Media Matters pajama boy was triggered by Steyn’s entrance:
