Mark Steyn on the radio

... last friday.
For three hours, Canadian columnist Mark Steyn filled in for political talk show host Hugh Hewitt. The guest appearance is now archived here, minus the commercials. (which makes the whole show only 90+ minutes long)
Steyn's one of the wittiest writers currently commenting on the west's cultural decay, and it was a genuine pleasure to get to hear him in such a large dose for a change.

This was the tipping point for me: I pledge now to purchase Steyn's latest book, America Alone, later today.

Well, if there's a copy of Mark Steyn's new book for sale on a Vancouver bookshelf, I certainly can't find it.
according to Chapters it's now out of print and is being reprinted.

I did pick up some interesting books, particularly in their discount section:
_The Myth of Hitler's Pope: How Pope Pius XII Rescued Jews From the nazis,
_The Americanization of Benjamin Franklin,
_Grant and Sherman: The Friendship That Won the Civil War

I picked up H.W. Brands, Lone Star Nation: The epic story of the battle for Texas independence. With luck we'll soon be reading Styn in the National Post newspaper here in Canada.
