Radio, Sept. 24: Black conservative in Hollywood?

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 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Lots was covered on our 9/24 show, including today's book signing party with Joseph C. Phillips (details at bottom), the momentum for term limits on judges (grumpy governors not withstanding), Claremont's conservative summit in Washington where I spoke, and the chances for a big TABOR win in Maine where I've just been.

And if you thought there was no such thing as a black conservative in Hollywood, Denver's own Joseph C. Phillips, formerly of "The Cosby Show" and now playing on Fox TV's "Vanished," has news for you. He's exactly that, as witnessed in his powerful new book, "He Talk Like a White Boy."

Phillips is eloquent, touching, funny, and fearless as he talks about why he supports Bush, loves cowboys, rejects victimology, and is raising his three sons to identify as Americans, period. I'm delighted he'll be with me for an hour in studio, this Sunday on "Backbone Radio with John Andrews." I urge you to tune in. Other guests and topics include:

** Richard Viguerie, the direct mail wizard of the Right who helped make Reagan president, also has a book you need to know about. The title says it all: "Conservatives Betrayed." He too will be my guest on 9/24.

** So will right-to-life champion Eve Sanchez Silver, who broke with the Komen Foundation over their coverup of the abortion/breast cancer link.

** So will Kyle Fisk, the young GOP challenger to El Paso County's only Democrat legislator, and state Sen. John Evans, sponsor of the disabled veterans tax break, Referendum E on your ballot.

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?

Yours for self-government, JOHN ANDREWS ------------------------------------------------------------- INVITATION: Joseph C. Phillips book signing and author conversation, this Monday the 25th, 6-730pm at Borders Books on County Line Road, just west of I-25 and north of Park Meadows mall. Joseph will meet and greet Backbone listeners, and he'll sign your copy of the stirring, startling new black conservative testament, "He Talk Like a White Boy." Come on out, bring a friend. -------------------------------------------------------------- Govs' Quartet Whistling Dixie? Good ol' Roy Romer, who in 1990 beat me but couldn't stop the term limits juggernaut, hopes to stop it this time as he and three peers (including the current, term-limited incumbent) sound dire warnings against Amendment 40 / Limit the Judges. But the people, in contrast to the politicians, favor the proposed limit 54-37 in polls.
