Interview: Mark Steyn on After America, One Year Later

Last year, as the month of August began, I received a copy of Mark Steyn's After America from his publicist on Wednesday, the Dow Jones dropped 512 points on Thursday, and S&P shorted America’s credit rating on Friday.

Mark’s crack PR team earned their keep once again this year, staging riots across the Middle East, a feckless "Quantitative Easing" program by the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, and a First Amendment-trampling POTUS, all in the past week, as a sort of extended infomercial to promote the paperback edition of the book, which is now out today.

Mark spoke with me late last week to discuss the new edition of the book, and the breaking events in the news it foreshadowed.
