Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we won’t have Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson to kick around, as usual. He’s presently undergoing Special Forces psychological training by spending 8 hours on the new Little Mermaid ride at Disneyland’s California Adventure with Hugh Hewitt. I’ll partner with Duane tomorrow for my NARN show, at least for a little while.
We have a great lineup today in place of our Week in Review. First we’ll meet Belinda Keiser of Student Access Student Choice to discuss new regulation described as “scandal ridden” by the Daily Caller last month. Next, Rep. Marsha Blackburn joins us for a short chat about the incandescent light-bulb ban that Republicans want to repeal. In the second half hour, Matt Lewis and I will discuss the new job numbers, and in the final 30 minutes, we’ll talk about the rest of today’s news with my blog partner Tina Korbe!
We’ll also cover the the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area for more three months. 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 this week:
Four months ago today, my cousin Marizela Perez disappeared from the University District in Seattle, Washington. I am devastated to tell you once again that there are no new leads or breaks in the case. Her parents have exhausted their work leave and have had to return to the East Coast. The family is weighing various legal and investigative avenues to pursue. As I reported in May, the quest to obtain Marizela’s online/text info has been an uphill battle. After months of pressing, we finally received a search warrant two weeks ago related to the case. It had been signed by a judge on April 22; we gained access to it in late June. …
Marizela’s Google web history was not included. The Seattle Police Department will not disclose the actual Google records to her parents so that they could pursue the search for Marizela on their own.
Keep the family in prayer.
