The Ed Morrissey Show: Matt Lewis, FIRE’s Greg Lukianoff

posted at 2:14 pm on October 5, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Today on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’ll start off with Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller, discussing the fundraising numbers breaking today for Rick Perry, and Matt’s argument against Herman Cain.  In the second half, we will welcome Greg Lukianoff, the president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), who will tell us more about the UWS-Firefly case that just got resolved this week — and how humorist Dave Barry is apparently a threat on one campus.  Don’t miss this special Browncoats edition!

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!

Marizela Perez has been missing in the Seattle area for more than six months now. 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.

America’s Most Wanted is now on the case, too.

Michelle has a new update on the case:

She disappeared from the University of Washington campus area in Seattle at the age of 18 exactly seven months ago today. Spring and summer came and went, along with Marizela’s 19th birthday. Autumn is now upon us. Her university friends are back in school.

Life goes on, but remains at a standstill.

Uncertainty corrodes.

Grief deepens and settles without the ability to mourn.

There are no new developments from the Seattle Police Department. Nothing to report.

The family is moving forward on the legal front to try and obtain information from Marizela’s Internet/social networking accounts that the Seattle Police Department refuses to share with her parents. Internet lawyers tell us the case is complicated, but they’re willing to help and we are grateful.

Continued thanks for all your prayers and well wishes for Emem and her parents.

Keep the prayers coming.

This is very sad. Hopefully America’s Most Wanted can jog some memories. Bless Marizela and her family. May she be returned home safely.
