The Ed Morrissey Show: the week in review with Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson

posted at 2:34 pm on April 15, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’ll take a look at the past week with Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson of the Hugh Hewitt Show. Duane and I will discuss the budget votes, Obama’s budget speech, the status of the non-war war in Libya, and Huntsman’s magic letters. All of this and more — and stay tuned for a preview of tonight’s Hugh Hewitt Show.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page — be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!

We’ll also cover the the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area for over a month. Marizela’s case has a connection here at Hot Air, as she is the cousin of the Boss Emeritus, Michelle Malkin. Michelle is trying to spread the word through Facebook and Q13Fox/KCPQ in Seattle. We want to encourage prayers for Marizela’s family, and also try to reach anyone in the area who knows where Marizela might be and ask them to contact the police.

The search has its own website now, Find Marizela, for the latest in the efforts to bring Marizela home. There is also a fund for the family to keep the search efforts going. Be sure to check there and at Michelle’s site for further developments, and keep the family in your prayers.

Michelle has a new update this week:

For Seattle-area readers, Marizela’s friends are holding a benefit concert and fundraiser in May to support the family’s continuing search efforts.

More info here.

Thank you so much for your continued thoughts and prayers!

Perhaps people are so focused on the search, it may look insensitive to talk about the poltics of the search.

But I read that article, Ed, and my jaw dropped when I read this line:

Permits were issued for searches Wednesday and Thursday, allowing the family to bring in three canine teams with five people assigned to each team. Parks officials accompanied each team to make sure they avoided environmentally sensitive areas. Seattle police also were among the searchers.

Freaking Seattle. It almost reads like a parody of Seattle, but apparently this is true.

The city would not let them search for a missing girl in “environmentally sensitive areas”, and instead of providing extra man power for the search, they provided man power to make sure the searchers avoided the environmentally sensitive areas!?!?!?! What?

If something unthinkable happened to Marizela, the person might know that would be the place to put her? Not many people would look there with the restrictions. I pray to God many times a day and at night when I wake up to help Marizela, family members, and Michelle. Gosh this is so awful for them.

You have to have a permit to conduct a search for a missing love one? Bizarre, you’re right it reads like a parody.

If one of Obama’s kids ever went missing, they would employ police, national guard, firemen, earth movers and bulldozers until a formerly pristine park looked more like the surface of the moon. What hypocrites!
