Mark Steyn: The Best In The Biz

Mark Steyn's latest Telegraph article is "Who can stop the rise and rise of China? The communists, of course". The money paragraph is:

I said a while back that China was a better bet for the future than Russia or the European Union. Which is damning with faint praise: trapped in a demographic death spiral, Russia and Europe have no future at all. But that doesn't mean China will bestride the scene as a geopolitical colossus. When European analysts coo about a "Chinese century", all they mean is "Oh, God, please, anything other than a second American century". But wishing won't make it so.
Steyn is the best center-right writer working today. Krauthammer is great and Victor Davis Hanson rouses with inspiring written lectures, but nobody touches Steyn's combination of humor, depth of insight and generous sprinklings of offbeat hipster references.

I've read very little of his stuff but I've enjoyed him. Mark Steyn is all over the internet so I stick with what I know and what's right there for anyone to see. Styen is a columnist and that's what I was referring to anyway.
