Mark Steyn speaks

Mark Steyn was awarded the Salvatori Prize by the Claremont Institute at its annual Winston Churchill dinner on December 2. John attended and wrote about the event in “A splendid evening.” This past Saturday C-SPAN broadcast Steyn’s speech as part of its American Perspectives series. The first hour-and-a-half of the broadcast is taken up by a conversation with former Rep. Dan Rostenkowski; Steyn’s speech begins at 1:32:00 of the three-hour broadcast. Steyn’s theme is “the death of a great civilization through wealth and complacency,” but there are a lot of laughs along the way.
