I’m going to take today and tomorrow off from live shows so that I can spend some time with visiting family and help prepare for the addition of granddaughter #2, hopefully this week. Instead of a live show, I’ll replay last week’s entry with Kevin McCullough and Mary Jackson of Marriage Encounter. We had a great conversation about the season of Christmas and the current state of politics. We also talked about BMX Radio Now, Kevin and Stephen’s exploding success in independent talk radio, as well as Kevin’s book, The Kind of Man Every Man Should Be: Taking a Stand for True Masculinity.
I’ll be back with another Classic TEMS episode tomorrow, and will go live with Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson on Wednesday, unless we’re in the middle of welcoming the new baby!
We’re also holding a fundraising drive for Twin Cities Marriage Encounter. I’ll be posting PayPal buttons for one-time and automatic monthly donations to this non-profit, which tries to build stronger communities by strengthening marriages, on my show posts until the end of the year. We now have a matching challenge!. If we can raise $1500 by January 15th, an anonymous Hot Air reader will match those funds himself. Donations are tax deductible! Please note The Ed Morrissey Show or Hot Air on the memo line so that we can keep track for the match challenge:
Now you can join the conversation in the chat room! Be sure to register 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.) Jazz Shaw of The Moderate Voice moderates the chat, and he has his Troll Gun Trivia Contest running before the show, for those who get there early — and are registered!
