Hugh started talking about Terri Schiavo and stated that he felt there was cause for hope. I sure hope he is right and will explain why later in the program.
Hugh just got off the phone with Govenor Bill Owens of Colorado speaking of the mess at the University of Colorado and of Bob Beauprez's run for Colorado Governor since Bill Owens is term limited. Bob Beauprez would be great for Colorado and I hope he runs.
UPDATE: Talking Colorado politics and the need to win the Governership with our Colorado House minority leader.
UPDATE: Back to Terri Schiavo and our out of control legal system with "The Beltway Boys". Talking about the US Senate and the President's nominations.
UPDATE: Dr. Dobson talking to Hugh about the Terri Schiavo case and the outrage that the US Congress has not been able to act. This is the prelude to legal Euthenasia. Dobson's website is Family.org where he has more info on what you can do at CitizenLink.
UPDATE: More on Terri Schiavo. "Even if he is the best husband in the world, we don't starve people to death in the US." - Hugh Hewitt
There will be a counter protest against the antiwar folk protesting at the Colorado Capitol tomorrow. If you have the time show up.
UPDATE: "I am not a legislator because I hate last minute stuff." - Hugh talking about the last minute actions of the legislatures in trying to defend Terri Schiavo's life. "It might not be very likely, but what if she dies this weekend?"
UPDATE: Joni Eareckson Tada is on with Hugh right now. She is barely back from the hospital and is calling from her bed. Hugh brings up that there is no credible evidence that Terri Schiavo is in a state from which she can't recover since the husband has refused to allow the testing to be done. Joni speaks from authority since she has been a quadriplegic for the past 38 years. Someone else has to feed her so she is in that way in a very similar to Terri. Hugh asked Joni if she would object if Terri had signed a written statement saying that she did not want to live if she had to be on a feeding tube. Joni said no, and Hugh agreed. The point is however that Terri never signed such a statement and we are relying on her husband's statements which are suspect to say the least.
UPDATE: Hugh talking about the University of Colorado and his desire to be President of UC. He said he would not fire Ward Churchill but instead give him a 24 hour cable show. Sort of like how he loved the MoveOn rally.
Throw the bums out. That is Hugh's message. He wants to start a national movement to vote all Judges out of office until they state speaking out publicly about the out of control judges such as the judge in the Terri Schiavo case. This sounds good to me as I have long advocated throwing the bums out in Boulder Country Colorado where I live.
UPDATE: Bloggers are helping shape public opinion, and Hugh hopes there will be a breakout into the Main Stream Media. Hugh repeated his call for citizens to take action using the resourses on Dr. Dobson's CitizenLink website.
Hugh mentioned Little Red Blog.
UPDATE: Hugh is calling for prayer for Terri, her husband, the judge, and all others involved in the situation. His first caller suggested people consider fasting and praying for this situation. The next caller had a son on a feeding tube and spoke powerfully about the sanctity of life. Hugh spoke against using civil disobedience in this case.
UPDATE: The show ended with a poem "A Life" read by Tarzana Joe.
