I want to thank everyone that took time to listen in today. Jan and I had discussed not running the program this week. With so many people having July 4th commitments, who would we have as guests and listeners?
In fact we went so far as to hold a vote with our regular panel. Overwhelmingly the vote was to go ahead, so we did!
I want to thank Jan Barrett, Peter Hyatt, Denny Griffin, Dave Knechel and TJ Hart for carving out time on this holiday to go on air.
Todays program kicked off with an update on the search for missing 26 year old Pearl River resident Zachary Pittman. A story that sadly does hot seem to have the media attention it deserves. I suspect that is about to change. Joining us for that segment was his mother Christy Ragas. Jan, myself, Christy, and the new official photographer for Blogger News, lets call him Mr R, spent the afternoon together on Saturday. It included a field trip that seems to have attracted some attention from the local populous. The chief of police wants me to call him! That will be happening tomorrow.
If you are not familiar with the case, this program will bring you up to speed.
The Haleigh Cummings case continues to seemingly meander. The focus at the moment appears to be on the drug case. But I know for certain that they are still working very hard on the search for Haleigh Cummings. That was very clear from an email I received from a member of PCSO that I hold in great respect.
Over on the Caylee Anthony case we have yet more theatrics. But, I have to say that I was somewhat surprised by the analysis offered by the panel. There again, that is why we have this program. People get to express their opinions. I don’t always agree, but that does not mean that I am right (just ask Jan).
We have been running this weekly series for well over a year, I have learned a great deal during that time. Sometimes it is what is not said that is more important that what is said!
I got an early wake up call this morning. You can expect some fireworks in the coming days.
I see movement in all three cases.
In the program I made a reference to William Cobra Staubs. I believe that my quote was that ‘He is hotter than a pepper sprout’, that is a quote from a June Carter Cash song. He just went off the Scoville chart. But more on that tomorrow…
