Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we have a marathon session on tap! In the first hour, my friend Andrew Malcolm joins us as always on today’s TEMS at 3 pm ET! The Prince of Twitter and I will discuss the intersection of media and politics and all of the hot political stories of the day. The last twenty minutes will be our Lightning Round, where our Chatizens ask the questions and we provide the pithy answers, so be sure to register for your free Ustream account today to participate!
In the second hour, Fox News analyst Monica Crowley joins me to discuss her new book, What the (Bleep) Just Happened: The Happy Warriors Guide to the Great American Comeback, and after that, Governor Rick Scott of Florida joins me to discuss his fight with the Department of Justice over voter rolls in his state.
Marizela Perez has been missing for a year.
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 on the case on the one-year anniversary:
Exactly one year ago today, my 18-year-old cousin Marizela (known affectionately to her family and friends as “Emem” or “Mei”) Perez disappeared from the University of Washington campus in Seattle.
She is still missing.
Those words form on the computer screen with disembodied disbelief. But my heart is screaming:
SHE IS STILL MISSING. WHY, DEAR GOD, WHY?!!!!!
The not-knowing is every parent’s worst nightmare. It brought normal life to a standstill for Marizela’s parents, Edgar and Jasmin. And yet, they have to keep living and working and praying for their only daughter. Because that is what they must do. Their strength and dignity through all the suffering has been an inspiration to me.
There have been no new developments in Emem’s case. No word from the police or the medical examiner’s office. No activity on her bank accounts or social media accounts.
And no response from the Google legal department to our request for help in January.
Keep the prayers coming.
