Radio, May 13: Lost on Constitution Ave.

Join us on radio every Sunday, 5-8pm on 710 KNUS, DenverTo listen online from anywhere, click ------------------------------------------------------------------------- MOTHER'S DAY 2007: What's the best thing your mom did for you? ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Constitution Avenue, Independence Avenue, the Washington Monument, Capitol Hill -- those great names from our nation's capital still stir me even after a lifetime of visiting or working near them. But after being out there this week, I came back to Colorado troubled.

Many who hold power in our government are in a fog. They either don't know or don't care about the principles of our Constitution and Declaration of Independence. They're politically lost, and that includes some Republicans as well as most Democrats. It is a more critical issue for America's future than even the war in Iraq or the 2008 election.

Backbone Radio is all about renewing our self-government by giving the lost a compass to steer by and courage for the journey. This is a cooperative effort. We on the air bring the issues, ideas, and guests each Sunday. You as a listener weigh in to keep us sharp -- and act on your convictions day by day.

** Republican legislative leaders, Sen. Andy McElhany and Rep. Mike May, join me this week for a review of how bad it got with Dems running things in the recently ended session -- and what we can do now.

** We'll review recent Supreme Court action (abortion, guns, campaign finance) with Claremont legal scholar John Eastman, and get another report on the presidential races from columnist Mike Littwin.

** And before you put the car up on blocks, catch energy and economics analyst Dan Gainor for a reality check on the latest round of high gasoline prices.

Spin the dial, surf the net, troll through the weekdays -- you just won't find anything else like Backbone Radio. Please be part of our show this weekend by tuning in at 5pm Sunday.

Yours for self-government, JOHN ANDREWS ------------------------------------------ COWED BY RADICAL ISLAM? You may have heard about the thoughtful documentary made for PBS, "Islam vs. Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Center," that is being withheld from broadcast for fear of offending the imams. I saw a private screening, and it's powerful. This thing belongs on the air. To see the trailer and take action, go to ------------------------------------------ CARE TO JOIN US?
