NARN, the Nothing Could Be Finer Edition!

posted at 1:00 pm on January 21, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

The Northern Alliance Radio Network will be on the air today, with your hosts Mitch Berg and Ed Morrissey, on from 1-3 CT with live streaming video and chat. If you’re in the Twin Cities, you can hear us on AM 1280 The Patriot, or on the station’s Internet stream if you’re outside of the broadcast area, as well as right here on on the permanent Ed Morrissey Show page at Hot Air.

Nothing could be finer than to be near Edina in the … afternoon? Today, Mitch and I will talk about the Republican primary in South Carolina and Newt Gingrich’s big surge in the last few days. USA Today’s Jackie Kucinich will give us a report from the ground game in Greenville, plus we’ll have guests in studio and on the phone for other big stories of the week. Will Mitch go full Newt on the local Twin Cities media today? Join us and find out!

Be sure to call 651-289-4488 to join the conversation! You can also register for free at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions. (And if the log-in prompt doesn’t come up in the chat box below, use this link instead.)

Marizela Perez has been missing in the Seattle area for more than nine 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 an 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.
