The Ed Morrissey Show: John Cribb, Jazz Shaw, Marriage Encounter

Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), John Cribb, co-author of the new book The American Patriot’s Almanac: Daily Readings on America, joins us to discuss the book that’s currently #70 on Amazon’s list. Jazz Shaw will join me in the second half to discuss the open Senate seat in New York, dynasties in general, and the brilliance of the referees in Baltimore last Sunday.

Today, we’re also starting my 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. I’ll talk more about this fundraiser during the show, and talk about why I volunteer as board president for TCME. Donations are tax deductible! Please note The Ed Morrissey Show or Hot Air on the memo line:
