Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), LA Times reporter and blogger Andrew Malcolm returns from his week off to our Tuesdays with Andrew discussions on the intersection of media and politics. The Prince of Twitter and I will discuss the top stories of today, including the skirmish between Pakistan and NATO, Newt Gingrich’s attempts to tamp down the uproar over his MTP appearance, and much much more!
We’ll also cover the the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area for more than two 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.
Also, Move America Forward has started its Troopathon effort for 2011, and Hot Air once again is sponsoring a blogger team in the competition! The Hot Air Steamers will square off against 5 other blogger teams — the COINS, Team 6, The Greyhawks, The Anti-Jihadists, and our friends at Free Republic on their own as The Freepers. The Steamers team includes Maggie’s Notebook, Lonely Conservative, and No Sheeples Here.
We’re combining up to sell care packages for our troops overseas. We’ll all take part in the Troopathon on June 23rd, when we’ll find out how the Steamers managed to do against our stalwart competitors — but this is one contest where everyone wins, especially the men and women who receive these packages and feel some small part of the support we all want to give them. Be generous, and thank you for your efforts!
Also, I will be covering another effort to show support for wounded veterans put on by the Palazzo in Las Vegasnext weekend.
