I bought and read the book. I e-mailed Hugh and told him that I'll not recommend the book, it will become fire place starter in short time. Hugh has a national radio show and represents himself as center right. My rub is that he thinks the Republicans should drop the gun issue because it is a loser. He thinks people should wait until the "professionals" arrive if there is a crime problem to be delt with. If I recall, Al Gore found out the opposite opinion is felt by voters. Please write him and ask him if he would vote for Gore if nothing changed except that he ran as a Republican, but be aware that he lives in California, is known to be emotional and could cry easily. His e-mail is:

If you want to have the book and have not bought it yet, I will mail you the ashes.

Over at Glock Talk (http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?threadid=284031&highlight=Hewitt) I started a thread titled, "Hewitt Blewitt: "...just wait for the professionals..."

Some were dumb-founded that he, the self-proclaimed "center-right" talk radio host would say such a thing... and yet, I heard him say it on the radio with my own ears as one caller suggested that the Russian people, teachers, et al should arm themselves against the Chechyan terrorists. Hugh was non-plussed at the thought of non.gov types defending themselves, even though they would out-number the bad guys many, many times to one.

Even frequent caller and Israeli Defense Force veteran, Yoni called in to advise Hugh on the error (though Yoni prefers tight controls with training).

Did Hugh actually *write* that phrase in his book? Please verify.

Criminals always hope their victims will wait for the so-called "professionals." Their job is to write crime reports and solve as many cases as they can, not prevent crime.
