Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Matt Lewis will join us to discuss the wipeout at AOL on Friday, as the newly-merged AOL-HuffPo partnership laid off hundreds of workers, as well as nuclear policy in the wake of Japan’s crises and 5 reasons Orrin Hatch will prevail in the primaries next year.  In the second half, Jazz Shaw will bring us up to date on the President’s press conference claims on energy last Friday and discuss the latest on Bradley Manning.

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 discuss the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area since Saturday afternoon. 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.  Michelle also has this entry yesterday, along with a new flyer from the police:

Apart from the Seattle Police Missing Persons Bureau at             206-684-5582      , please contact if you have any information regarding Marizela:

Let’s bring Marizela home as soon as possible.
