CNET editor James Kim Missing

CNET editor and former TechTV product reviewer James Kim is missing along with hisJames Kim family while on vacation in the Pacific Northwest. James, his wife and two children left last week on a road trip. They were last seen in Portland on Saturday November 25th, where they visited with friends. His family has filed a police report and are currently working with the San Francisco Police Department, which has opened a missing persons investigation.
We are all very worried about James and his family.

Just found this from the police report.

They were driving a 2005 silver Saab station wagon with California personalized plates of “DOESF”.”

A recent shot of the Kims (minus Penelope) on MUNI:

Update: As of 9 a.m. PST Friday, investigators said they were narrowing their search to Oregon’s Highway 38 as the family’s most probable route to their destination of Gold Beach. The Kims last spoke to an innkeeper there by phone about five hours before they planned to arrive.

Update : At 1:45 PM Monday afternoon, rescuers found Kati Kim and her two daughters at the car near Bear Creek Road.  James had left Saturday morning to find help and had said he would return that afternoon.  He has not been heard from.  Rescuers are working through the night to try to find him.

East Meets West 47

Roger and Tom talk politics.  Be warned.  They also talk about the Raiders, a little TV, and a few other things, plus Roger gets backmasked again. Why?  The answer may surprise you.

This episode sees guest host Josh Lawrence very softly and question Roger’s existence. Meanwhile Roger tries to talk Josh out of buying a non-HDTV. Tom meanwhile just tries to get along.

The two men who aren’t from anywhere near Verona, get political with it as the US elections near. Roger still isn’t convinced Tom Welling is tall and Tom basks in the glow of the Cardinals World Series.

Next EMW Tuesday

Roger’s doing family type things today and I’m off to LA tomorrow, so we’re looking at a Turesday recording this week.
