I confess: I love Mark Steyn.
No, no, no…..I’m not cutting out his picture into heart shapes, or stalking the man in parking lots; nothing like that.
I simply mean he’s the funniest and most prescient author/pundit around. He’s like Bob Newhart in his heyday, but with a British accent and a politically conservative bent.
If you haven’t heard him or read him, I’d initially pick up America Alone. Published in 2006, it’s even more relevant now than it was six years ago. It’s simultaneously “laugh-out-loud funny” (that’s a quote from Amazon.com, but I completely agree), and depressing. He may have penned it using a time machine, since so many of his concerns have already begun to occur.
Anyway, please check out Steyn’s latest interview with Ginni Thomas on DailyCaller.com. It’s roughly 20 minutes long, but well worth your investment of time.
