is pleased to announce that its
April 16 show will center on the
young person's view of equal custody.
A Huntsville, Texas high school
journalist who became interested
in PEP and the personal campaign
of member Mark Bitara, will team
up for the show with rising
Hollywood actress ("Sisterhood
of the Traveling Pants", and
"The Missing" are a few
of her credits) Jenna Boyd.
For April 23rd PEP-Talk is especially
honored to host former Texas First
Court of Appeals Justice Eric Andell.
This will be an outstanding episode
-- I've had the opportunity to chat
by phone with Judge Andell and found
him to be a very intelligent and
open-minded chap who's sensitive
to the deep suffering we're going
through. Our April 9th show
featured the two leaders of our
new El Paso PEP chapter.
If you missed it the show will be
archived on the website within a
week. PEP-Talk is hosting
a very special Mother's Day episode
on May 14th featuring Beverly Morris,
the Chairperson of the National
Association of Noncustodial Moms
(NANCM)*. I've spent substantial
time talking with Beverly.
She and her organization get it,
and I expect PEP/NANCM to work together
very effectively until the problem

Houston, I hope you'll attend the
April 28th meeting of the Houston
Property Rights Association (
They're a great organization that's
become interested in the mess the
custody system is producing all
across the board and they've asked
me to speak about it to their
lunch meeting. I've also been
asked to give a talk at the annual
NANCM convention in Orlando on June
-- if you're able, I hope you'll
Because I try
to make it a habit to under promise
and over deliver, I won't go into
detail about a number of other developments
that haven't reached fruition yet.
But more is coming, thanks to your
common sense, your commitment, and
your hard work. Especially
now that we can see the goal line
this is not the time to relax.
Keep up the fire. Our nation
has a great (if clunky) political
system that responds if we work
it. It's a pleasure to be
working with you to get some long
overdue change driven into the custody
system (the key to restoring the
traditional American family).
I'll be glad when we're finished
but -- just like you -- I'm in it
until the battle is decisively won.
Our kids are counting on us not
to let the storm that engulfed so
many of our lives go on and engulf
theirs when they come of age.
There's no alternative to victory.
