In case you missed it, here’s how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with one of the most performed and recorded songs of all time.
~Tuesday’s Mark Steyn Show considered the DC Medical Examiner’s very belated findings on Officer Sicknick, and the degeneration of a land of laws into a wasteland of lies. Mark also reflected on Ontario’s totalitarian ineptitude, and celebrity duets from Joe Biden to the Duke of Edinburgh.
~On Wednesday Steyn swung by the aforementioned Tucker’s telly show to address Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s contention that climate change is caused by racism. Click below to watch:
Speaking of AOC, Mark has written the introduction for Marc Morano’s invaluable new book, Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think. It’s available (personally autographed by Steyn) direct from the Steyn bookstore, and also as part of a dynamite denialist double-bill.
Also on Wednesday Laura’s Links rounded up the Internet from pub solidarity to fainthearted totalitarians.
~On Thursday, for Joe Biden’s Earth Day climate summit, Mark recalled the glories of Earth Days of yore.
~On Friday the weekend edition of The Mark Steyn Show had a super-secret espionage thread running through from the Five Eyes with one eyeball down, our Chinese Penetration Watch and a Durham Report update, all the way to the Steyn archive to revisit Mark talking 007 with the late John Sessions …and a singing Bond villain.
Our weekend movie date continued the 007 theme with Steyn’s consideration of Spectre.
~Also on Saturday, our audio serialization of Mark Steyn’s Passing Parade looked at contrasting Continental monarchies via Prince Rainier of Monaco and Queen Juliana of the Netherlands.
~Our marquee presentation was Mark’s latest Tale for Our Time – Jack London’s futuristic vision of a reprimitivized California, The Scarlet Plague. Click for Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Four, Five, Six and the conclusion.
Tales for Our Time and Mark Steyn’s Passing Parade are special productions for The Mark Steyn Club. The Mark Steyn Club is not to everyone’s taste, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and, if you have a chum who’s a fan of classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.
A new week at SteynOnline begins later today with the monthly omnibus edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show and continues with Steyn’s Song of the Week.
