They were joined by the great Mark Steyn for an extended discussion of what he’s been up to of late, in particular getting sued by global warming theorists for the crime of exercising his right to free speech. Topics include how this relates to the larger movement by the Left in attempting to silence dissenters, the whims and depredations of the American legal system, how this has affected Mark’s relationship with National Review, and ways Mark’s admirers can help him in his defense. These topics may sound heavy, but they’re handled with Mark’s characteristic élan and light-hearted touch.
Also featured is Loon of the Week (democracy ending to thunderous applause) and This Week in Gatekeeping (the New York Times’ continuing attempts to keep the concepts of millions and billions and trillions straight). The show wraps up with some Super Bowl predictions, and a look back at our ability to predict anything accurately in the past.
