Let me begin today by saying thank you to those of you who used to watch me on 'FOX & Friends' and are now joining me for 'Live Wire with E.D. Hill' from 10:30-11:30 a.m. ET. I greatly appreciate your time. I also want to thank those of you who continue to e-mail me interesting information from your towns that I am often using on my program. Frequently, fascinating stories never make it to the national news because we don’t learn about them.
For instance, tomorrow we will tell you about a career criminal who was supposed to be jailed until 2029. He wasn’t. In fact, after getting out of jail Friday he was already robbing and threatening to kill people by Monday. He picked the wrong people. He is now dead after the actions of a 14-year-old victim.
Also, I was intrigued by the story of the high school football team that ran up the score to over 100-0 because the coach wanted to let a senior runningback set a record. Is that sportsmanship?
I also love the inspiring stories, like another football player who scored the winning touchdown in the biggest game of his life. Except he didn’t. Although the ref didn’t see it, the ball hit the ground before bouncing into his hands. The boy immediately alerted the official to the mistake. He told the truth. His team lost. What would most teenage boys have done?
If you have stories like this, I would love for you to share them with me: email@example.com
Now, about North Korea, which threatens that any increased pressure from the U.S. will be considered an act of war. What? Pressure equals an act of war? Yes. Logic does not seem to factor into their actions. They threaten “physical” measures. The U.S. General who would take command if North Korea decides to attack,U.S. Army General B.B. Bell, says, “U.S. forces have been well trained to confront nuclear, biological and chemical threats.” And, oh yes, the U.N. Security Council continues to talk.
Remember how much I distrust any investigation originating in Washington, D.C? You’ll love this one. In 1999 former Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros pleaded guilty for understating the amount of money he had been giving his mistress. Since then, the independent counsel, David M. Barrett, has been trying to determine whether “any criminal laws were broken“ by government officials. The result? He can’t say for sure. This, though, he does know. His bill so far to the American taxpayers is $21 million dollars….and counting! See, I knew you’d like that one.
I can’t wait to see you all tomorrow!
