Join us on radio every Sunday, 5-8pm on 710 KNUS, Denverand now also on 1460 KZNT, Colorado Springs To listen online from anywhere, click ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sunday is Constitution Day, the 219th anniversary of the signing of America's basic charter of self-government. Washington DC itself, you may remember, only exists as our capital city because of the Constitution. We at the Claremont Institute will be there for a Monday seminar and dinner in observance of the oft-overlooked day.

My seminar talk on the state of conservatism in the states will set the theme for our September 17 edition of "Backbone Radio with John Andrews." We'll broadcast live from the Heritage Foundation studios near the US Capitol. Aaron Johnson of Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave's staff will be my mike partner. I hope you'll be listening.

** What's the view from President Bush's senior staff as a tough election nears? Deputy White House press secretary Dana Perino, a Coloradan, is my guest for an inside look.

** How is the nation's will to win holding up against the shadowy Islamofascist enemy, in perspective with wars in the past? Victor Davis Hanson, historian and author, tells us.

** How goes the battle of ideas for conservatives inside the Beltway liberal establishment? Seth Leibsohn, Claremont fellow and producer for Bill Bennett's radio show, returns as my guest.

** Plus a conversation with two men who heavily influence the way Coloradans see Washington DC, reporters John A. Farrell of the Denver Post and M.E. Sprengelmeyer of the Rocky Mountain News.

Please tell your friends about "Backbone Radio with John Andrews." America and the West, still not fully aroused to the threat we face five years after 9/11, need a lot more backbone right now. We're committed to helping. How about you?
