Listening in on the Hugh HewittShow

UPDATE: I got to sit in on the show during the start of the second hour, so I missed this. He's right--to many talking heads doing a lot of talking, without having read what they are talking about. This is why I have not talked about it.

You owe it to yourself to know what this guy is saying, and about the looming confrontation we're facing as a nation, and what the next two elections here will say about whether we're going to face up to it or not.

RadioBlogger has the audio file.

But, during the second segment (I think) of the second hour, Hugh made a striking comment on the similarities Iranian's expatriates are feeling these days--seeing how Mahmoud Ahmadinejead is destroying Iran,--and what Cuban's feel about what castro has done to Cuba. It's not very often you hear that sort of comparison.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejead and Castro--two monsters of the same kind. After all, its not about ideology, about making life better for the people, or even about any sort of religious beliefs. Like Hugh's guest said, at the end its all about power.


I have the honor of sitting in on the Hugh Hewitt show today. He is talking about Brian Ross' and ABC's Reputation "In the Mix(er).", the immigratin reform bill that just passed, and the Debra Livingston nomination.
A solid source tips that Debra Livingston, Vice Dean of Columbia Law School, will be the next Administration nominee for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
I love the radio business, so this should be fun.--and intresting. Hugh is making some compelling comments on the immigration bill. Listen in.

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…
