Janu and the Whalesharks and Amaze.fm

Thursday, April 2, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

A first for the program today –an in-studio appearance by an Amaze.fm “song-of-the-week” winner Janu and the Whalesharks, a wonderful young band full of great voices, energy and charisma.

They will be performing Sunday night in Pomona, California at the Glass House. Doors open at 7 and the show starts at 9. $14 at the door. Go and be among those who can “I heard ‘em play when…”

Off tomorrow in another attempt to repair the vocal chords. Geraghty the Indispensable is in tomorrow as a result, with my –and the audience’s– thanks. Rasping at the listener gets old all around. Geraghty has lined up the next senator from Connecticut, Rob Simmons, who is challenging Chris Dodd, the senator from IndyMac, AIG, and Freddie and Fannie. I expect Congressman Simmons will be a frequent guest on the show throughout the next 18 months.

Quick link: The college essay assistance firm I discussed just now is EssaysEtc.com. The article on the firm opened by my friend Sandy Skahen and her colleague Elizabeth from the Orange County Register that I read from is here.

Second quick link: My NationalReview article on the future of talk radio is generating a lot of e-mail. If you missed it yesterday and need at least a little good news, read it.

A “Thunderbolt Of Revenge”

North Korea is issuing threats against Japan if the latter shoots down its new missile when launched.

Japan (and the U.S.) will ave little choice but to shoot down the rocket if it veers towards either country’s soil. If President Obama didn’t order the Navy to destroy a missile headed even remotely close to Alaska, the signal he’d be sending the rest of the world would be disastrous, and would undo a lot of the good his resolve on Afghanistan has communicated. (There is even a push for another 10,000 troops for Afghanistan, on top of the 21,000 the president has already committed –so credit and support where credit and support is due should be coming from the Congressional GOP.)

With Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking bluntly about Iran, and the North Korean missile launch imminent, President Obama is seeing Joe Biden’s prediction of an early testing coming true. We are all going to get the measure of the new foreign policy very very quickly.

Over 3 Years, 9 Patients Made 2,700 ER Visits Costing $33 Million

You read that right.

Part of the problem is the wake of deinstitutionalization policies that favored the now homeless being turned out of long-term psychiatric care, and an increasing trend away from incarceration for drug offenders. Given that both populations would be incurring taxpayer born costs if housed in hospitals or prisons, the $33 million number is deceiving.
