In response to the terrorist attack on our neighbor and staunch ally to the north, I’ve invited Mark Steyn back to discuss the West’s paralysis in the face of Islamist radicalism on Thursday’s show. Mark was a guest for two hours on Monday (transcript here), but it was mostly happy talk –show tunes and “cultural arcs” for the most part. Mark, on a book tour even as the assault on Canada’s monument and parliament commenced, “got angrier as the day went on” following the attack on Canada’s heart, and good for him. So should we all. Recall it was the Canadians who fought the Nazis when we were still on the sidelines, and who hid our people when Khomeini was still above ground and killing everyone he took a dislike to. Thursday’s subject will be Wednesday’s assault on our friends, and a number of essays in The [Un}documented Mark Steyn deal with the subject, and we will kick those essays around like a goat’s head at a Taliban bender in the first hour of Thursday’s show from Arizona.
It would be a great message to the jihadis if Mark’s book debuted on the Times’ best-seller list and then zipped up to #1. Do your part.
